Potatoes make a great side dish. There are so many different ways to cook them on your Brinkmann grill. They don’t just have to be boring old baked potatoes. Here are some ideas for your next barbecue.

They can be cut in half or into logs, rubbed with olive oil & sprinkled with black pepper and garlic powder & cooked on the top rack of the grill.

You can cook them in a foil pan. Cut red potatoes in half, place in a foil pan, with crushed garlic & olive oil. Toss to coat the potatoes. Sprinkle with paprika & chives. Just cover the pan with foil and cook on lower grilling surface at 350 degrees for an hour.

Another way is to make a foil pouch with heavy duty foil. Cut up 4 medium red potatoes into cubes. Cut 1 onion into thin wedges. Put into a bowl & pour on about 1 tbsp. of olive oil & toss together. Sprinkle with garlic powder and black pepper or any other seasonings that might intrigue you. Put the potatoes and onions in your foil pouch & seal. Grill on medium high heat for about 35 mins. turning the foil packet over once while grilling.

Another foil packet method can be done by coating thick potato slices with olive oil. Place a slice of bacon on a flat piece of foil. Put a layer of sliced potatoes. Then put a layer of thinly sliced onion, a dab of butter, (if you wish, at this point you can add more bacon, but if you put bacon in the middle have some partially cooked bacon for the center),season with salt and pepper. Make another layer of potato, onion, and bacon. Salt & pepper it again & drizzle more olive oil over the top. Seal the packet up tight, add another layer of foil. Repeat until all the ingredients are used up. Grill over medium high heat for about 40 mins. You may need to open a packet to check if they are done.

There are many different ways to grill up potatoes for your barbecue or tailgate party. Use your imagination and get out there and start cooking!
