How to Bake Potatoes on the Grill

If you’re already barbecuing, why run in and out of the house tending to all the side dishes. You can bake your potatoes right on the grill. Make sure to break out the sour cream, chives and real bacon bits or any of your favourite toppings.


Supplies Needed:

  • Baking Potatoes
  • Aluminum Foil


You will also need a fork to poke holes in your potatoes and barbecue tongs to rotate and remove potatoes from the grill.


Step 1: Wash Potatoes


Rinse the potatoes in water to clean off dirt.

Step 2: Poke Potatoes with Fork


To release pressure that may build up during cooking, poke the potatoes with a fork a few times.

Step 3: Wrap Potatoes in Foil

Wrap the potatoes tightly in foil.

Step 4: Heat BBQ

Preheat the barbecue to 350 degrees F or so. Allow it to heat up for about 15 minutes to get a well-established heat.

Step 5: Put Potatoes on the Grill

Place the potatoes on the grill, away from the flame. Allow them to cook for up to 90 minutes, until they are soft to the touch. Flip the potatoes about half way through the cooking time.

Unwrap your potatoes, slice them and add your favourite toppings.
