Scrub your potatoes to clean them, and dry them off with a paper towel. With a fork, poke a few holes in the potatoes. This will allow steam to escape during the cooking process. Cut a piece of aluminum foil large enough to thoroughly seal around the potato. Lay the potato on the foil, sprinkle a little salt and pepper (and a little garlic powder, if you like, and add about a teaspoon of butter. Wrap the potato until it is completely sealed so when the butter melts, it won't run out.

Lay the potatoes on a hot area of the grill and grill them for about an hour. Depending on their size smaller potatoes may not take as long to cook. I like to turn my potatoes a few times with a tong to allow for even cooking.

Using tongs or oven gloves, gently squeeze the potato. If it feels soft all the way through, it should be done.

Alternatively, I sometimes place the potatoes (wrapped in foil) directly around the edges of the coals. They cook on the coals while you cook other food on the grill.
