Kids wanted hamburgers for dinner last night and wife wanted fries with it. Here in Japan everything is small even the ovens. I wanted to cook everything all at once so decided to try it on my kettle. My wife was skeptical about it at first, but not afterwards. Everybody liked it. Just put the vortex off to the side and put some foil down for the fries. Just dusted the fries with some local salt n pepper seasoning. Also gave the fries a faint beef taste, last cook was a brisket flat. Got to do it again soon. Fries were frozen out of a bag.

Just put the fries on. 450-500 for about 25min.

Oishi desu, indeed!

I need to give this a shot in the near future. Heck, the Vortex does such a great job on other high heat cooks... why not fries!?

Never thought of doing fries but...

I do frozen tater tots in a grill basket all the time. Throw a little Saltgrass 7 on them beforehand and flip a few times during the cook (about 25 - 30 minutes). Wife and daughter can't get enough "grilled tater tots" they come out with just the right crunch and less greasy than oven baked.

What we brethren cook on our grills never ceases to amaze me!

I've been cooking grilled fries for years. Thanks for the tip about using the Vortex. I use my Vortex a lot but had not thought about doing fries with it.

Figured it would work for fries. There was no smoke on this one. Maybe next time I'll toss a couple peach wood chips in there.

Sorry no after pics, just imagine them being s golden brown color.
