  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    Wash potatoes, dry well, and cut into quarters. Place potato pieces in a resealable container or a zip-top bag.
  3. Step 3

    Mix together olive oil, minced garlic, chopped dill, melted butter, salt, and black pepper in a small bowl. Pour over potatoes, seal the container, and let marinate for 30 minutes.
  4. Step 4

    Preheat grill to medium heat. Using a slotted spoon, remove potatoes from container and place on a long sheet of aluminum foil. Pour enough of the marinade over potatoes to coat them well, but make sure they are not "swimming" in it.
  5. Step 5

    Place another piece of foil on top and crimp the edges together to create a packet. Make 3 small holes on the top of the packet to allow steam to escape while cooking.
  6. Step 6

    Place potato packet on the grill and cook for 30 to 40 minutes, or until tender.
  7. Step 7

    Remove packet from grill and let sit for about 5 minutes. Using heat-resistant gloves, carefully unfold aluminum foil, being mindful hot steam will escape. Transfer potatoes to a platter and serve.
