  • 2 pounds baby potatoes Yukon gold are the best
  • 2 Tablespoons beef tallow duck fat, bacon fat, and ghee are also amazing options
  • 1 Tablespoon Hey Grill Hey Beef Rub or equal parts salt and pepper

Garlic Butter Sauce

  • 8 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 Tablespoons salted butter melted
  • ¼ cup parsley
  • 1 Tablespoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 lemon zest and juice


  • Preheat. Preheat your grill to 425 degrees F for two-zone cooking.
  • Season the potatoes. Slice all potatoes in half, lengthwise. Toss in the melted beef tallow and season on all sides with Beef Rub.
  • Oil the grill. Oil the grates by dunking a folded-up paper towel into some cooking oil. Pinch the paper towel in a pair of tongs and wipe the oil onto the grill grates.
  • Grill the potatoes. Place potatoes cut side down on the indirect heat side of the grill. Close the lid and cook for 10 minutes. Flip the potatoes skin side down on the grates, close the lid, and grill for an additional 10 minutes or until fork tender (around 210 degrees F internal temperature).
  • Make the garlic butter. While the potatoes grill, prepare the garlic butter sauce. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Butter the potatoes. When the potatoes reach 210 degrees F, transfer them from the grill to the bowl and toss to coat in the butter.
  • Finish grilling. Return the potatoes, cut side down, to the direct, high heat side of the grill, and cook for 2-3 minutes or until crisp and slightly charred.
  • Enjoy. Remove the potatoes to your serving dish and drizzle with any remaining garlic butter sauce in the bowl. Serve immediately on the side of your favorite BBQ dish.
