Ever wonder how to make baked potatoes on the grill? It's easy! Just wrap the potatoes in a double layer of foil (which keeps in the steam that cooks your potato) and transform your gas or charcoal grill into an oven. The result: a lightly smoke-flavored skin and a fluffy tender potato on the inside that you can flavor with a dollop of sour cream and your favorite seasonings.
Tip: If using a charcoal grill, open the bottom vent completely. Light a charcoal chimney starter filled with briquettes. When the briquettes are covered with gray ash, pour them onto the bottom grill grate and push them to one side. Adjust vents as needed to maintain an internal temperature of 350-400 degrees F. Place the top grate on the grill. Place the foil-wrapped potatoes on the top grate over the side without coals. Grill, covered, until tender, about 1 hour, 30 minutes, flipping and rotating the potatoes halfway through grilling.
