With the summer heat going full blast, we’ve been cooking a lot of our meals outdoors on the grill. Fortunately, there are lots of things that are delicious to grill, like shrimp, smoked sausage, corn on the cob, and potatoes.
The problem is, if you grill all these things separately, they all get done at different times. What I wanted was a way to grill them all together, as one big mixed dish.
Looks like a job for the foil packet!
If you read the recipe for my Bacon Ranch Potatoes Grill Foil Packet, you already know how aluminum foil can change the way you cook in the summertime. All you have to do is cut your ingredients up into small, quick-cooking pieces, wrap them up in a piece of foil, and pop that packet on the grill.

- 6oz smoked sausage, sliced
- 2 cob corn, cut into pieces
