I’ve made a few variations on hobo packets. They’re easy to make, tasty, and make for easy cleanup. This BBQ hobo packets version uses BBQ sauce and has quickly become one of my favorites. Cheesy goodness, with potatoes and onion, all cooked with sausage in a BBQ sauce. All of the ingredients get all steamy happy inside the packet while they cook and the flavors melds perfectly.
I made these BBQ hobo packets a few times for the crew that was remodeling our kitchen. They liked them with sausage or chicken, but I think they favored the chicken one the most!
BBQ Hobo Packets
I’ve made a few variations on hobo packets. They’re easy to make, tasty, and make for easy cleanup. This BBQ hobo packets version uses BBQ sauce and has quickly become one of my favorites.
- 8 small red potatoes
- 2 teaspoons vegetable oil divided
- ½ sweet onion cut into thin wedges
- ½ pound smoked sausage cut into bite-sized pieces (or chicken tenderloins)
- 3 tablespoons your favorite BBQ sauce spicy works best
- ⅓ cup shredded cheese
- Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Add potatoes and boil until just starting to get tender, 15-20 minutes. Remove from water and let cool slightly then cut into wedges.
- Spread out foil pieces and drizzle with 1 teaspoon of oil each.
- Add the remaining ingredients, splitting them between the two pieces of foil, drizzling with however much BBQ sauce you prefer (a tablespoon or so each should be enough). Also add half of the potatoes to each.
- Seal foil into tight packets and place on a grill over indirect heat for about 10-15 minutes or until the onion has started to soften.
- Remove from grill and open to let cool before serving.
- Note: If you aren’t careful the bottoms of the packets can get very hot. Let them cool before serving!
