Should I soak my potatoes before grilling?

There’s no need to soak the potatoes before grilling! Simply toss them in olive oil, salt, pepper and granulated garlic (optional), then arrange them in a single layer on the grill.

Should you boil potatoes before putting on the grill?

Giving your potatoes a quick boil at the start guarantees they’ll be creamy on the inside and charred on the outside. Skip this step and you’ll be left with burnt potatoes with raw or overly dry insides. The par-boiling process will also cut your cook time, as grilling raw potatoes can take ages.

How long does it take to cook potatoes on the grill?

If you need your grill really hot, it is best to place them away from the high heat, such as on an upper rack or off to the side. Baked potatoes are done when a fork pierces the center easily. They will take about 45 minutes to 1 hour to cook. Potato slices in packets will cook much faster than whole potatoes.

What is the best way to cook baby potatoes?

Chop baby potatoes into bite sized pieces then place in a bowl and mix with oil, seasoning, whole garlic cloves and dried rosemary. Transfer the potatoes to a piece of foil around 28 inches in length. Bunch the potatoes in the middle of the foil, and place 3 sprigs of thyme or 3 teaspoons of dried thyme on top and 1 Tbsp. of cubed butter.

Should you wrap potatoes in foil when grilling?

Wrap whole potatoes in aluminum foil to protect them from the intense heat of the grill and to help them cook evenly. Add seasonings to the packets to get the most flavor out of grill-baked potatoes. Start by separating a piece of foil large enough for your potato.

What do you top potatoes with when grilling them?

Foil holds in moisture and steams the potatoes. When mixed with the seasoning, this gives them a deliciously flavored and moist potato. You can top potatoes grilled in foil with just about anything. I LOVE to pair roasted potatoes with peri-peri sauce!
