Baking Potatoes on the Grill

This works well with baking potatoes, sweet potatoes, or yams:

Under running water, scrub dirt off potatoes and rinse, then pat dry.  Leave skin on.  Pierce potatoes lengthwise with shiskabob skewers, then wrap in foil.

The skewer does two things: it pierces the potato so that steam can escape, and it helps conduct heat into the middle of the potato so that it bakes evenly.

Bake on a covered gas or charcoal grill.  Turn the potatoes every 20 minutes or so.  Sweet potatoes and yams should cook in 45 minutes; baking potatoes take about an hour.
