FAQ For the Easy Campfire Horseradish Potato Skewers Recipe

How long does it take to cook a potato in a fire pit?

Pre-boiled up to 6 minutes on the skewers, up to 30 if you do not pre-boil and the potatoes will get to crispy.

How do you cook potatoes on a fire without foil?

Build a large and very hot charcoal fire. Put the potatoes in the fire, burying them completely (you can cook something else on top of the
grill as the same time). The potatoes will be done after anywhere from 45 to 90 minutes, so keep checking them by piercing them with a skewer.

Do potatoes cook faster in foil or without?

Wrapping potatoes in foil does not hasten baking. On the contrary, since the foil itself has to be heated before the potato begins to bake, cooking times increase slightly. Not only do you get better baked potatoes when you bake them unwrapped, you also save money.
