Cuisine : American,
Recipe Yields : 4 potatoes
Prep time : 15 minutes
Cook time : 34 minutes
Keywords : baked potatoes, baked potatoes on grill, grilled baked potatoes,


  • 3 tablespoons neutral oil (like avocado oil)
  • sea salt (for coating)
  • 4 medium Russet potatoes (even in size)
  • aluminum foil (for wrapping)


  1. Preheat grill on high for 15 minutes with lid closed to about 350º F (176º C).
  2. Wash potatoes and prick all over with fork. Pour enough salt into a medium bowl to cover bottom of the bowl. Coat oiled potatoes in a light layer of salt, enough to add some extra crisp to the cooked skin.
  3. Place potatoes, one by one, in another medium bowl and coat all over with neutral oil. Transfer to bowl with salt and turn to coat with a thin but complete layer of salt. Repeat with all potatoes.
  4. Place prepared potatoes in microwave and cook on high for 4 minutes.
  5. Wrap microwaved potatoes in two layers of aluminum foil to prevent leaks or flare-ups.
  6. Place potatoes directly on grill grate and shut lid. Keep lid shut the entire time; expect cook time to be a bit longer if lid must open for other items. Grill for 30-40 minutes or until completely soft all the way through. Pierce with a skewer to test for doneness. Skewer should easily pierce potato all the way through with no resistance.
  7. Slice longways down the center of the cooked potato and gently press in ends to open. Use a fork to fluff potato flesh and serve with desired toppings.
