How to Cook Potatoes on the BBQ

A baked potato is a simple side dish to serve at a barbecue with meats or other veggies. While you can bake potatoes in your oven while food cooks on the grill, this requires you to run back and forth to prepare the meal. Cook potatoes on the BBQ to produce potatoes with crispy skins and soft fluffy insides. Allow for 10 minutes of prep time before you put your potatoes on the barbecue to cook. Depending on their size, baked potatoes require 35 to 60 minutes of baking time on the grill.

Skill level:Moderately Easy

Things you need

PotatoesSpongePaper towelButterSaltGround black pepperAluminium foil

Instructions

1 Rinse the potato in warm water and scrub with a clean sponge to remove any dirt from its surface. Pat the potato dry with a paper towel.

2 Spread a thin layer of butter over the potato's surface, using your fingers. Set the buttered potato onto a sheet of aluminium foil.

3 Sprinkle the potato with salt and pepper to taste before wrapping it in the aluminium foil. Wrap the potato tightly so no butter can leak out.

4 Place the wrapped potato over medium heat on a grill, or in a bed of hot coals. Cook a small potato for 35 to 40 minutes, a medium potato for 45 to 50 minutes and a large potato for 55 to 60 minutes. Flip the potato halfway through its baking time.

5 Remove the potato from the heat and allow it to sit for 5 minutes. It will continue to cook using residual heat for this time. Serve hot.

Tips and warnings

Do not use potatoes with roots growing on them; always use fresh potatoes with smooth skin.
