Grilled Potato Wedges


We just started cooking with a 30-inch gas grill after decades of using a Weber® charcoal grill. While we still use the charcoal grill, the extra space allotted to us on the gas grill has made us really branch out with different sides. I created this one knowing we could put the potatoes directly on the grill and not have to make a foil packet to make it fit!

32 wedges


  • ¼ cup olive oil

  • 1 large clove garlic, peeled and crushed

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary, or more to taste

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme, or more to taste

  • 4 Idaho potatoes, each cut into 8 wedges

  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt

  • freshly ground black pepper to taste


  1. Combine olive oil, crushed garlic, chopped rosemary, and chopped thyme in a covered container; let stand for 2 hours or longer.

  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  3. Put potatoes in a large saucepan and pour in enough salted water to cover; bring to a boil; cook over medium-high heat until mostly tender, 8 to 9 minutes. Drain potatoes and transfer to a bowl.

  4. Remove garlic from the olive oil mixture and discard. Pour oil over potatoes, sprinkle with garlic salt and black pepper, and toss to coat.

  5. Place potatoes skin-side down on the grill over direct heat; reserve remaining oil. Grill for 10 minutes; move potatoes to indirect heat until completely cooked, 5 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a serving bowl and drizzle remaining oil over potatoes.

Cook's Note:

Don't boil the potatoes until completely tender; a knife should meet some resistance when poking the wedges. If they are too soft, they won't hold up on the grill.
