need help with foil packet cooking

gatordoc | Jul 12, 2007 07:34 AM

I have a recipe for a "seafood bake" in individual single-serving foil packets on the grill. The recipe calls for a cod fillet, shrimp, corn on the cob, and sliced new potatoes with a little bit of butter and dill, salt and pepper. I've made it once and it turned out very good (even though I'm not a huge fan of dill). Only took about 13-14 minutes on the gas grill.

I'm headed to the beach with some family and, for one of our meals, I wanted to make this recipe. I am not very familiar with foil-packet cooking, however, so I have some questions. Here they are:
1. Can I make 6-8 servings of this and place it in one large covered foil pan and achieve the same results?
2. If I can do the above, what should I estimate the cooking time to be?
3. Can it be done on a charcoal grill instead of a gas grill? Or perhaps the oven would be better?

Also, if you have a favorite foil-packet recipe or tip, please share!
