Potatoes be wicked awesome!
Potatoes with a flavoring applied to their skin cook up nice on the grill – in this case it is Virgilio’s Dipping Oil. Regular small, red spuds cook up fast and have a high surface area to volume ration to hold a lot of flavor. Fingerling potatoes are nice but are on the expensive side – it is just a potato, after all. We start them in advance of the meat over indirect heat as they take quite a while to cook. We sometimes microwave them for 2 or 3 minutes before grilling to speed the process.
1. Coat the potatoes with the dipping oil.
2. Place the potatoes on the grill away from the direct heat of the fire, place the cover on the grill, and cook for about 20 minutes.
3. Remove the cover and grill your meat dish. By the time the meat is finished, the potatoes should be done.
