  • 8 small potatoes
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 lime
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley
  • 1 long iron or metal skewer

Cooking Directions

  1. Clean potatoes and place each through skewer, closely placed together then chop garlic and parsley finely, then add to a small aluminum tray with olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper
  2. Prepare charcoal grill: Add lump hard wood charcoal to 2 chimney starters with paper towel brushed with olive oil and lite to start fire
  3. Once charcoal is a nice grey color, remove charcoals from chimney into grill pit, evenly distributed throughout with a small pile for a high-heat zone, but do not add grates onto grill
  4. Place potatoes with skewer over charcoal fire just above heat with skewer ends touching the edges of the grill (you can add other meats and vegetables the same way to the fire if you’d like). Place aluminum tray of garlic, olive oil, and parsley mop onto grill if you have a higher-grate attached area not above the heat zone as it will be used to dress the potatoes every 30 minutes
  5. Slow cook/grill potatoes for several hours, turning once every hour so all sides of potatoes are cooked/grilled evenly and lightly dress with olive oil, garlic, parsley mop
  6. After about 3 hours, potatoes will be moist and ready so remove from grill and let rest for 5 minutes
  7. Remove potatoes from skewer and onto plate. Ready to serve
