How Long to Cook Grilled Potatoes
To make grilled potatoes in foil, place packets directly on the grill rack and cook approximately 30 minutes turning occasionally until tender.
No grill or is your grill full of BBQ Chicken? These foil potato packets can be baked in the oven at 350°F for 40-50 minutes or until cooked through.
Roughing it and looking to make campfire-style foil packet potatoes? Place them directly onto some of the coals (not in the flames) and cook about 20-30 minutes or so turning occasionally.
You want them to cook but ensure they don’t burn (I sometimes add an icecube to the middle of the packet to help steam them). Carefully use tongs to remove packets from the coals.
