Adapted from the recipe “Grilled Potatoes” by Diner524 on


6 medium-sized baking potatoes, scrubbed and then sliced about 1/6” (4mm) thick

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon paprika

¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese

6 tablespoons butter, cut into small, thin slices


Light all the burners on the the barbecue grill.

Combine salt, paprika, and Parmesan on a small saucer.

Place a sheet of heavy aluminum foil about 18” (460mm) long on the preparing surface.

Place the potato slices in rows on the foil , each slice overlapping the previous one.

Leave a clear space of about 1” (25mm) around the edge of the aluminum.

Sprinkle the cheese/salt mix over all the potatoes.

Drop thin slices of butter all over the potatoes.

Cover the aluminum with a second sheet of foil and crimp the edges all around to seal the package.

Turn off the burners under half the barbie cooking surface and place the package on this side.

Grill for about 60 minutes with the barbie closed.   

Be careful opening the package -- hot vapour will escape!

The potatoes should now be cooked. I wanted them slightly darker, so I removed the top sheet and placed the potatoes under a high grill for about five minutes.
