  • 1 pound baby potatoes
  • 8 uncooked sausages, various types*
  • 12 mini bell peppers
  • olive oil
  • kosher salt

for the potato seasoning

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


  • Scrub the potatoes and then parboil them for 8 minutes. Drain, and briefly rinse in cold water. Set aside to dry, until cool enough to handle.
  • Preheat your gas grill to medium-high, or get the coals heating.
  • Place the sausages and bell peppers on a large, rimmed baking sheet pan, and rub all with a thin coat of olive oil. Season the peppers with a big pinch of salt on all sides.
  • Mix all of the seasoning ingredients in a large zipper bag. Slice the baby potatoes in half, and add them to the bag. Seal the bag, and toss to thoroughly coat the potatoes. Transfer the potatoes to the sheet pan.
  • When hot, oil the grill grates, and add the sausages, peppers, and potatoes. You can grill the potatoes directly on the grates - on the vast majority of grills, they won't fall through (or, you can use a large grill pan or foil pan).
  • Keep an eye on everything, as they'll finish at different times, and check for scorching. Depending on their position above the flames, the peppers will finish first - make sure to flip them once to avoid blistering the skin too deeply.
  • Turn the sausages after 4 minutes; they'll take 8 to 10 minutes total.
  • Remove the peppers and sausages to a clean pan as they finish.
  • The potatoes will probably take the longest. Test for doneness by piercing with a knife. To finish them off, once the peppers and sausages have been removed, you can spread the potatoes over the grill to reach the heat.
  • Serve immediately with dipping sauces, such as your favorite BBQ sauce, whole grain mustard, and even ranch dip.


* For added interest, choose a variety of sausages, such as beer bratts, Italian, chicken, andouille, even vegetarian brands.
