Cooking on a BBQ grill is a great way to prepare a meal in the summer time, and you don't have to limit yourself to simple meals. A baked potato that was cooked on a BBQ grill can taste amazing, and this article will give you some tips and ideas to help you make the tastiest possible baked potatoes on a BBQ grill.
How To Cook a Baked Potato on a BBQ Grill
It's actually quite simple to make a baked potato on a BBQ grill. The first step is to make sure that the potato is nice and clean – this is good practice no matter what vegetable you are cooking.
Next you should wrap it in tinfoil – some people wrap several potatoes together, but this can lead to them being rather dry once they are cooked. For best results, each potato should be wrapped individually before putting them on the BBQ grill.
Making a great tasting potato is not difficult, but it requires a bit more than just wrapping it up in foil and throwing it on the grill. It's important to make sure that the piece of foil will be large enough to cover the entire potato. The end product will need to be nice and moist, so to achieve this you should put about a tablespoon of oil on the foil. The oil will keep the potato moist until it's ready to be eaten.
Tips For Making An Extra-Special Baked Potato
If you want to make an extra-special baked potato, add a few seasonings in with the oil before you wrap the potato up. Which seasonings you add is up to you, why not experiment with some spices and seasonings that will compliment the other foods in the meal?
It takes about 45 minutes to cook a baked potato on a BBQ grill. You can place them anywhere on the grill, but try to avoid the area with the highest head. To test the potato to see if it is ready, just prick it with a fork – if the fork easily goes into the center of the potato then it is ready to eat.
