Makes me want to try some "nailed" and "unailed" for the sake of comparison.

Yup, that's what my mom used, as I mentioned here.

Potatoes on the grill.
This is how I cook taters in the grill.

Just so you know. The taters were put right on the fire line an cooked for an hr. I flipped them at the 1/2 hr mark and after an hr I set them as far away from the heat as a could. Now, we put on the meat, whatever that is , your choice. That photo there was prime rib. Many times when the taters are done I will slice them open and add cheese. I also like to add a large chunk of pecan wood to the fire when I'm cookin the taters. It really add some nice flavor to a tater!!!

I have some aluminum potato baking nails I got at Wal-Mart in the kitchen gadget section about 20 years ago.

Default Spud Spikes Potato Nails

I saw the Weber nails a few weeks ago online (and yes I had to purchase them) but I'm a big fan of the Spud Spikes stainless steel potato nails. While Spud Spikes are great for potatoes I like to use them while barbequing brats. Not only do they cook faster they stay straight once the spike is removed. That's a plus for me because I prefer a straight brat in the bun. The Web nails made in China were a little on the short and thin side to use with the brats. Spud Spikes being 6 inches long can handle those brats and potatoes with easy. The aluminum nails have issues with leaching. So you can guess what I'll keep using? Look at these brats…

My father had those back in the 60's when he would have his bowling team over for grilled Reuben's and baked potatoes.

Sorry, I do believe Biggy's interpretation would work. I can't believe one little nail would/could transmit enough heat to cook the inside of a potato... Somebody work the math!!!! Where's Gore???
