How to Grill Whole Potatoes

whoe baked potato on grill

Grilling a whole potato is one of the simplest things you can grill and it will turn out very similar to a baked potato out of your oven.

Items you will need:

Potato, heavy duty tinfoil , Fork and Italian Salad Dressing, Butter or Olive Oil.

Taking a cleaned potato, stick it with a fork do this 15 or 20 times all the way around the potato. You don't have to stick it all the way through, maybe a quarter of the way in to the fork is just fine.

Then take a piece of foil large enough to wrap the entire potato, place the potato on the foil and add either a tablespoon of the salad dressing, or olive oil directly on the potato. Wrap the foil tightly around the potato.

Place on the grill off the heat (I will use the upper rack for this) on medium heat for between an hour and hour and a half depending on the size of the potato. If you are a thermometer happy person, a potato is fully cooked when the inside reaches approximately 210 degrees. Most people simply stick a fork in them: When the Fork goes in with minimal pressure the potato is done.

Note: If using butter never put the wrapped potato over direct heat, the butter will burn.
