Very delicious. Some things that I did diffrent would be once the potatoes were cut in half I poked holes in the potatoe with a fork. I also used seasoned salt instead regular salt. I also would recomened backing for about 55-60 minutes if you like your baked potatoes a bit softer.

These were good. I too have fixed them on the grill. I baked them in the oven tonight, but had to do them at 350.(had something else already cooking) They took 1 1/4 hrs. I used seasoned salt (just sprinkled), butter, and shaved parmesan cheese. Very tasty! A friend of mine taught me to score the potatoes about 1/4-1/2 inch deep,(like tic tac toe) after cutting in half lengthwise, so that the butter and seasonings get into the potato. Tastes better than ordinary baked potatoes and no prep time! Thanks!

I do this recipe a little differently. I drizzle olive oil on the potatoes instead of butter, and I put some whole garlice cloves in the foil package. The garlic gets more infused and doesn't smother the potatoes, and it also roasts in the olive oil.
