Baking potatoes on the grill is fun and very easy. It requires little attention and some patience but the result is worth it! So lets get to it! You will need Russet potatoes and you will cook them by the indirect method. So, go ahead and turn on half of the burners on your gas grill or pile up the hot coals into one side of your charcoal grill.
Scrub the potatoes well and coat with olive oil. Season generously with salt and pepper and wrap in aluminum foil.
Place the potatoes on the unlit side of the grill. Cover the grill and cook for one hour.
Using tongs very carefully remove the foil from the potatoes.
Arrange the unwrapped potatoes on the unlit side of the grill. Cover and cook for an additional 20 minutes.
Serve with butter, sour cream, bacon bits and chives.
