  1. We really enjoyed these taters! I have never thought of putting something like this on the grill but it worked out just wonderful and the flavor from the grill came through nicely. Thanks, Grumpy! Made for PRMR.
  2. This was really good. I had never put any kind of baking dish on the grill before and was a little nervous but this worked great. I reduced the recipe to 2 servings and the potatoes cooked much faster than they would have in the oven. The potatoes also had great flavor. Thanks for the recipe and introducing me to a new method of cooking potatoes! Made for ZWT5.
