  5. Place two sheets of heavy duty aluminum foil on a flat surface and pour the potatoes into the center of the foil.

  6. Fold the sides up around the potatoes and seal at the top by crimping the sides together to form a packet.

  7. Place the foil packet directly on the grill grate and cook for 25-30 minutes or until the potatoes are fork tender. (Be sure to check the potatoes after 15 minutes and to give them a quick toss to prevent the bottom from burning, if necessary.)
