Chef Tom fires up the Napoleon Prestige Gas Grill for Loaded Potato Salad cooked over a charcoal fire! It's all of the greatness of a loaded baked potato in potato salad form!
- 2 1/2 lb red potatoes
- 3-4 tbsp avocado oil
- Cattleman’s Grill Trail Dust All-Purpose Seasoning
- 12 oz or 8 slices thick sliced bacon
- 4 green onions
- 1/4 cup cheddar curds, diced
- 1/4 cup feta, crumbled
Ranch(ish) Potato Salad Dressing:
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1 tbsp Kozlik’s Dijon Classique
- 1 tbsp Cattleman’s Grill Pit Fire Hot Sauce
- 1/4 cup fresh parsley, minced
- 1 tbsp fresh chives, minced
- 1 tbsp fresh baby dill, minced
- Jacobsen Salt Co. Tellicherry Black Peppercorns, fresh ground, to taste
Place the red potatoes in a dutch oven and cover with cool water. Cover with a lid and place on the infrared side burner of the Napoleon P500RSIB-3 Propane Grill. Turn the heat to high. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, but maintain a simmer. Cook until tender when pierced with a toothpick, about 30 minutes. Remove the potatoes from the water and cool.
While the potatoes are cooking, install a Napoleon Cast Iron Charcoal Basket inside on one half of the grill. Fill with lump charcoal. Light the burners under the charcoal and let burn until the charcoal is lit, about 5-10 minutes, then turn the gas burners off.
Lay out the bacon on a wire jerky rack over a sheet pan. Transfer the pan to the grill. Cook the bacon on the half of the grill opposite the charcoal, over gas burners set to medium heat. Cook until the bacon is rendered and crisp, about 20-30 minutes. Remove the bacon from the rack and place on paper towels to soak up excess bacon fat. When cool, dice into 1/4” thick pieces.
When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut the potatoes in half. Place in a mixing bowl and toss with the avocado oil. Season with Cattleman’s Grill Trail Dust All-Purpose Seasoning. Transfer to the grill. Place the potatoes cut side down over the hot charcoal. Cook until golden brown. Flip. Cook until the skin is crisped and lightly charred. Remove from the grill to cool.
Grill the green onions over the charcoal until slightly charred and softened. Remove from the grill and dice.
