Baked Potato along with foil

When we talk about Baked Potato along with foil I personally recommend you guys to cover the potatoes with heavy duty aluminium foil before placing them on grill. Cooking potato in aluminium foil helps the potato slowly to rise in temperature and allows each potato to cook evenly.

Covering potatoes with heavy duty aluminium foil avoid the mixture from seeping out while the food is on grill. If you do not have heavy duty aluminium foil than you can wrap two layers of regular foil to increase the strength of foil.

The last step is very critical to get this crispy skin that will taste crunchy and delicious and soft and juicy inside.
