How to Coal-roast potatoes wrapped in aluminum
One of the easiest ways to cook potatoes is by simply throwing them on the fire. Okay, you don' want to throw them directly in the flame, but in the coals, it cooks them perfectly. What better time to roast potatoes than when you've got something cooking on a grill or in your smoker? Mark Patuto shares his tips for foil-wrapping your spuds and tossing them on the fire. Doesn't get any easier. They'll pick up the smoky-scented goodness from whatever you've got cooking. And clean-up? None!
* heavy-duty aluminum foil
* long barbecue fork to test for doneness
* fireproof oven mitt
1. Scrub potatoes clean, leaving skins on
2. Double-wrap with foil, making sure the outer layer of foil has the dull side in/reflective side out
3. Carefully place on coals and roast for 30-40 minutes. Check with a long barbecue fork for doneness (fork should go into potato easily when done)
