Nothing beats grilling out: the smell of the smoke, the succulent flavors, and the simplicity of an easy meal you can make in your own backyard. If you’re looking to keep the same ease of throwing a few steaks or chicken breasts in your smoker while adding extra flavor to your plate, look no further than these Grilled Potatoes in Foil.
Also known as “river potatoes,” this campfire staple is as simple as placing diced potatoes on the grill in foil–but with an extra creamy kick from Primal Kitchen Ranch Dressing. With just two ingredients, this incredible, tender side dish comes together in only thirty minutes. The best part? This recipe doesn't require exact quantities to be delicious–so when you're multitasking dinner, you can mix together your ideal combination of Ranch and potatoes.
If you’re wondering how long to grill potatoes in foil, consider the amount of potatoes you’re cooking. Larger quantities of diced potatoes will likely need a bit more cooking time. We made our potatoes in a Traeger combination smoker and grill, cooking for about thirty minutes at 500 degrees fahrenheit. As with all grilling recipes, you’ll want to adjust heat and cook time to your preference.
