Recipe type: Sides
  • Potatoes, Russets or Gold potatoes
  • Butter
  • Sour cream
  • Fresh herbs (parsley, dill, chives, scallions, dill, etc)
  • grated cheese
  • salt, pepper
  • bacon bits
  1. Scrub the potatoes clean with water and a sponge. Poke 3-5 holes into each potato with a paring knife. Wrap each potato in two layers of aluminum foil.
  2. Get the fire going on your grill. If you are using charcoal or wood, wait until the fire has burned for about 15 minutes and the charcoal or wood is partially covered with a thin layer of ash.
  3. Nestle each potato in the coal and ashes. Flip the potatoes over halfway through cooking.
  4. Bake for 15-25 minutes, depending on the size of the potatoes. Medium sized potato are usually done cooking in about 15 minutes. If you press on the potato with your tongs, you should feel that the potato has softened. You can also use a metal or bamboo skewer to poke a hole through the potato to check for doneness. If the skewer easily pierces the potato, it is done cooking.
  5. Serve the potatoes with your choice of garnishes.
