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!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

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

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

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

Think this will be my go-to recipe for grilled potatoes. Didn't have fresh herb so used dried (a tablespoon of each). Like another reviewer I left the garlic in. I also didn't cook the potatoes for 8 minutes. I let the salted water come to a boil and then turned the heat off til I was ready to grill. Came out perfect. Read More

The herb infused oil is to die for! I'm already thinking of other ways I could use this. I did replace some of the rosemary with oregano but only due to personal preference. Rosemary goes a long way with my husband and I. The only thing that didn't work perfectly for me with this was the boiling time. My wedges were thick but 8 minutes was too long. They got a little too soft and some started breaking away from the skin. You have to remember that they are going to continue to cook even after they are drained so I recommend pulling them off at 6 minutes. With that being said this was an excellent recipe and one I will make often during summertime grilling! Read More

Loved it! I cut the rosemary back to 1 T it can be a little overpowering but made this as written otherwise. I served this with grilled chicken thighs and a spinach salad. Thanks for sharing. Read More

I didn't have thyme so I put basil in... The one that is freshly in a tube... I left the crushed garlic in... Unfortunately I didn't have 2 hours to let it sit in the container lol... I had the wedges in a stainless steel pan with holes @ the bottom... on the top shelf of the BBQ because my wedged were to small they would've fell through lol.... plus I had lots?? Everything turned out great... It was really good...my wedges was small soooo I just had it in boiling water for couple minutes....... Next time I'll use bigger potatoes n do them right on the grill?? Read More
