Quick and easy and we loved these potatoes. I used Paula Deen's 'house seasoning' (salt, pepper, garlic powder) on them and found that if you gently twist the potato after spooning on the butter, the cuts 'open up' and the butter drips right down into the crevices. We loved how crispy they got on the grill. Kept the house cool....did our entire dinner on the grill! Thanks for posting this recipe Nif :)

I loved being able to grill our chicken on one side of the grill and doing these potatoes on the other side! The potatoes were done perfectly and had a lot of flavor. Thank you!

These potatoes were great. I love that they are pre-cooked in the microwave because I don't need to grill them for long. I thought the seasonings were just right but next time I will brush with a tad more butter just before plating. Thx for sharing this, I will make it many more times for sure.

Much like a plain baked potato, but with a little spin. Also, the texture is better than if you just microwaved them. I agree with another poster, the lemon is key here. I would probably add even more!

We thought that these were pretty good. I think next time I would use a bit more salt. They did not seem all that flavorful to me, but I am pregnant and perhaps my taste is a bit off. My husband loved them and said they seemed perfectly flavorful to him. We will make them again for sure. Thanks for posting the recipe.

Loved this! I sometimes stay away from potatoes in the summer because they take longer to cook and I don't like to heat up the house... on the grill outside? PERFECT!!! DH has declared them perfect FOOTBALL FOOD! I agree! Love the crispy skins too! Thanks Nif! Great side to any meal, or perfect appy with some cheese and bacon! Made for KK's Grilling Tag Event

Perfect grilled potatoes! I did grill them a bit longer than needed but the family loved how they were crispy skins. Hubby is saying now during football season I have to make these and top them with cheese, onions and bacon for game day fare! Loved how it turned a usually "mealy" microwaved potato into a star side dish at our dinner table! Thanks Nif! Made for one of the tag games but I can't remember which one and my notes are not showing right now. ha ha

These were wonderful, I cut into the meat of the potato to keep the juices contained in the skins. Will be making these again and again, thanks for posting!

Roast'em on the grill I say! Loved these. I had some Pampered Cheff Greek rub so I used that. The lemon juice is essential and just make's the dish. A beautiful addition to a grilled dinner. Made for ZWT6 Looney SPoon Phoodie,

These were simple to make and looked and tasted very good! They were a nice side dish to our Greek dinner. I did would increase the garlic powder the next time and I added lots of pepper. Thank Nif!. Made for ZWT 6 by one of the Unrulies Under the Influence.
