Carolina Sauce Newsletter: Celebrating National BBQ Month!

Finishing smoked ribs on the grill
Featured Recipe: BBQ Roasted Potatoes

May brings warmer, longer days without the oppressive heat & humidity of summer, making May the logical choice for National Barbecue Month. Whether you prefer cooking with charcoal or gas, and whether you're grilling ribs, steaks, burgers, chicken or seafood, potatoes are a crowd-pleasing side dish that will complement your meal. Instead of serving potato salad or traditional oven-baked potatoes, make these super-easy & flavor-packed BBQ-Roasted Potatoes on your grill. They're similar to pub-style seasoned potato "skins" or twice-baked potatoes, but slow-cooking on the grill makes these BBQ-roasted potatoes oh, so much tastier!

Ingredients (no set quantities needed)
New or Red Potatoes, washed & dried & cut into halves
BBQ Roasted potatoes & vegetables
BBQ-Roasted Potatoes & Veggies
Olive Oil
Your choice of BBQ Seasoning or Dry Rub, or dried-herb blend, or Kosher Salt & Cracked Pepper

Place all ingredients in a large bowl or resealable plastic bag, drizzling in enough oil to generously coat the potato halves and sprinkling in your choice of seasoning to taste. Mix well. Place a large square of heavy-duty foil on a tray or platter. Transfer the potato mixture to the center of the foil, making sure the potatoes are in a single layer, then fold up the sides to make a foil "bowl" or "boat." Carefully transfer the foil bowl to your grill, placing over indirect heat. Cover the grill and let the potatoes "roast" for about 1 hour or until done (they'll turn golden & crispy on the outside, while soft & tender in the middle).
Note: You can use the same technique to BBQ-roast other vegetables such as sliced zucchini with spring onions (shown in photo served with BBQ-roasted potatoes), but grill for only 15 to 20 minutes because they'll cook much faster than potatoes.
