Potatoes are one of the best vegetables to do on the barbecue. Grilled potatoes can really be delicious when done right.
Once you try potatoes on the grill, you will realise how easy they are to do. The hard part comes when you need to cook the inside without burning the outside.
By following these thechniques you will grill them perfectly. Potatoes are one of the best vegetables to do on a barbecue, as they can stand up to the high heat of the grill.
Pre-cooking & Grilling the Potatoes (Method 1)
Boil a little salt water and slice up your potatoes into wedges. Boil your potato wedges for 10 - 12 minutes. Season the wedges with salt, pepper and some garlic powder.
Then place on a medium heat grill and barbecue until a nice crispy outer layer develops. Grilling time will be about 5 - 8 minutes depending on the heat of the grill. Using this method ensures your potatoes get cooked right through and by grilling them at the end you create a tasty smoky flavour.
Barbecue Potatoes (Method 2)
When grilling your potatoes using only the grill, treat them like steaks. Sear the outside and slow cook the inside, by doing this you create a cripsy outer layer.
Slice your potatoes into wedges and pre-heat your grill to a high heat. Grill the wedges for a minutes then adjust the heat to a medium setting. Grill for a further 8 - 10 mintues until the inside is soft. The grilling time will depend on size of wedges and the heat of the grill.
Baking Potatoes with Aluminum Foil (Method 3)
My favourite way to prepare potatoes on a barbecue, using foil prevents them from burning and drying out.
You can prepare whole potatoes this way or slice them up into wedges if you would prefer.
Pre-heat your grill to medium and place whole potato or wedges into aluminum foil. When preparing a whole potato, wrap it tightly in foil and grill for 30 - 40 mintues until soft inside.
When grilling wedges or potato pieces, wrap in foil and grill for about 15 - 20 minutes until soft and crispy. Flavour with your favourite seasonings and spices. Grilling time will depend on the heat of the grill and the sizes of the potatoes or wedges.
