Running out of room on your grill? Try this — wrapping potatoes in a double layer of foil and sticking them under
the grill grate while you cook everything else. We watched a friend do this last weekend, only it's not just potatoes in those bundles...
The potatoes are sliced and layered with thick onion, then topped with big pads of butter and lots of salt and pepper. The cooking is completely hands off and very forgiving. Just nestle the potatoes in the charcoal and leave them there for an hour or so. (Notice the fading light in the photo, below...)
The onions caramelize slightly, the potatoes stay moist, and you end up with a sweet, salty, buttery tumble of good stuff.
