Cannot beat homemade, right?
Sure, but you need to select potatoes that are similar in shape and size. Ideally, all potatoes should be rather small because they will cook faster making the process much easier. If you use different sizes, most likely you will end up with some potatoes cooked properly and some raw. You may boil potatoes in their skins until soft and then put them on a hot grill.
You can add salt while cooking too because potatoes for grilling you buy in the supermarkets are usually not salty. You may also add salt while grilling.
