Grill Potatoes!

Recommended Posts

Recipes like this are fairly common and I'm sure a lot of people have their own, but I think I've found that simplicity is the key. I Made these along side a nice beef fillet for my wife for mom's day. They're too incredible not to share! Not exactly heart healthy, but let's just call them healthy for the soul smile

Andy's Killer Grill Potatoes (Feeds 2-4)

4 good sized russets or 6 good sized red potatoes

6 strips thick cut bacon

1 medium sized onion (whatever color you like)

Garlic Powder

Salt

Pepper

1. Tear 2 sheets of quality aluminum foil (about 18" each) and lay them on top of each other to form a double-layer. Fold the ends over on themselves tightly to attach them. This creates a durable 2-ply sheet.

2. Lay three raw bacon strips down next to each other lengthwise on the foil - the edges of the bacon should be almost touching.

3. Wash and slice half of the potatoes into thin round slices (Leave the peel on) and layer them evenly on top of the bacon.

4. Season the potatoes generously with Salt, Pepper and Garlic Powder.

5. Slice up the onion and layer it over the seasoned potatoes.

6. Repeat steps 3 and 4 with the other half of the potatoes on top of the onion.

7. Place the last three strips of bacon over the top.

8. Make another matching 2-ply foil sheet, place it directly over the top and fold the edges of the top and bottom up tightly on each together all the way around to form a packet.

9. Place it on a hot grill for 30-40 minutes flipping every ten minutes or so to keep the bacon drippings flowing throughout and to prevent any burning.

10. Unwrap carefully to avoid steam burns and try not drool to much from the wonderful aroma. Spoon on to a plate and enjoy!

I do "foil packet" veggies all summer fresh from the garden. But I like the bacon thing...

I do the same thing, however, I use the canned whole potatoes. They are already cooked and don't take nearly as long to make or prep. I also add mushrooms and occassionally corn to the mix. My secret ingredient though would have to be dill weed!

Ham works as a substitute but you should add some squares of butter to make up for the lake of bacon grease. I usually either mince or slice garlic to put in there and use some seasoned salt.

Feel free to use almost any ingredient. Another key is to really seal the edges of the tin foil so you don't have juices leaking out all over your grill.

We always called those "Hobo Dinners."Throw in some carrots and onions for a complete meal and any other veggie you like.

Potatoes and onions in foil (my heart says no to the bacon!!)are one of the staples of my summer grilling. I just sprinkle with Lowry’s and add a little cooking oil, seal the foil, and cook alongside the chicken or whatever else I'm grilling. I like to cook up a big bunch and then the leftovers get thrown in the frying pan in the morning with eggs!!! Mmmmmm!

I use Olive oil after a buddy suggested it. Mushrooms also help with moisture and I have used the foil pans and then cover them with alum foil. Garlic salt and season all or lowrys best way to do spuds!

I've never tried it with bacon, but I'm going to! I usually add red bell peppers or some roasted chili's to it also.

That sounds good!! My wife loves cheese, I may have to surprise her with this. But I doubt that I'll get the potatoes chopped down to 3/4 inch cubes!!

Can't wait to try this recipe. Tators are always great, haven't seen to many ways to make tators taste bad.

Last time I grilled some I boiled six potatoes with the skin on for about 6 minutes (you still want them hard in the center)

I slice them the long way and about 1/8 - 1/4 inch thick.

I make a seasoning with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Sprinkle the tators with the sasoning and put on the grill. Then brush on the butter. Flip every five minutes are so until done (takes about 20 minutes). Pretty tastey.

I grill potatoes in foil a lot the thinner sliced the better. The salad shooter works great for this. Also a good sub for bacon is to slice up a ring of deer sausage and that in.

    • Actually ZachD Leech does like this and nice job on the meat. 😎   Leech was just ribbing a few guys waving their big penis grills around and they got all chard about it.   Some of the best Jerk BBQ in the world comes out of a garbage can grill!  So it's not what you got or how big it is. It's what you can do with it.  😉   Keep posting whatcha make. 🙂        
    • Now I just have to pick up the sear box Haha forget leach 😀   Maybe he will approve since I got my SG for 340 bucks
    • Going camping finally for the first time this season this weekend so I rolled a breakfast fatty to take along. I plan to smoke it on my $50 over-priced pellet smoker that Leech doesn't approve of for some reason. I'll try to remember to take some pics.....    
    • If you ever have a hard time controlling temps with that controller you can always switch it out with a Savannah Stoker. https://www.savannahstoker.com/collections/frontpage/products/savannah-stoker-pellet-grill-control-system
    • LOL, you probably have more money into grills and smokers than I do.....
    • Just picked up a camp chef SG the other week pretty stoked about it  
    • I bought a boat before this season the guy I bought it from never transferred it in his name and registration was set to expire.  I had all the registration cards and what not I simply just made my own bill of sale from the "original" owner and scribble his name the best I could from his registration card. The trailer title was easy because the old owner filled out the seller info already and the guy I bought it from never filled out the buyer so I just had to put my info in.   I wasn't about to go track down the original guy when he lived 2 hours away from me. What is the worst that could happen
    • You will probably need that many to make sure you have one that works 😁. The last grill I bought was a top of the line charbroil with the side burner yadda yadda. Nearly $600.  Lasted barely two years with half the burners no longer working right and finally the grates were a rusted mess and it was replaced by a pellet grill. 
    • It's the same form whether the boat is titled or just registered. How long is the boat? 16' or longer or if there was a loan on it when new it would be titled. The form is just the starting point, since Homeland Security took an interest in boat ownership transfers several years ago it is not an easy process.
