Default Trash bag taters and sausage. (Pr0n)

Having been running my tail off lately. I was in major need of grill therapy. My wife phoned on my way home and said dinner was up to me and that the kids were eating at the grandparents. Double score! This meant not only did I get to cook but, I didn't have to rush.
Not wanting to waste this opportunity, I decided that I had to do something with potatoes so I could enter it in the recent Throwdown. Sometimes you really don't need to re-invent the wheel. Besides, I did plan on having my wife eat whatever I made and because of it knew I couldn't go too crazy. That's what made me decide to make good ole Trash Bag Taters. I popped into the local meat market to get a coil of Italian Sausage to make with the taters and away I went.
It started with getting the OTG fired up. Normally I would have used the UDS for something like this but, didn't know if I might need the power of direct heat. After that, I gathered up my ingredients.

The taters were then cubed up.

Then they went into some tinfoil along with some onions, bell pepper, lots of butter, and some mainly salt and pepper rub.

I kind of went a little over board and ended up having to use two pouches for the taters. Here it all is cooking away.

It cooked on the OTG for a good 30 minutes. I kept moving around the potatoes every 10 minutes. The Sausage was flipped but cooked indirectly the whole time. When it was all done, I tossed the potatoes into a bowl then sliced up the sausage and threw it in with the potatoes. A quick toss and voila!

Truth be told, it was pretty darn good straight out of the bowl but, a little BBQ Sauce never hurts.

This was a nice take on a classic and was total comfort food that hit the spot.

Thanks for looking!

Definitely comfort food, and it looks really tasty! I totally get the addition of BBQ sauce. I use rub and sauce on lots of unusual things...grits for instance.

Nice job!

Maybe I missed it but why are they trash Bag Taters?

They do look tasty!
Wait! Bigmista wrote a cookbook?
