Low Country Boil-Like Grilled Foil Packets

We just had (9/4/16) our first official Low Country Boil. It was a success!!! But it feeds 12 - 14 people. I wanted something that could feed about 4 people, so I came up with this. Same ingredients; less people; no boiling.

Ingredients

1 pkg
green giant extra sweet mini ears of corn-on-the-cob 12 ct. pack, divided
4
red potatoes, small, washed & cubed, divided
20 - 30
uncooked shrimp, divided
1 lb
smoked sausage, cut into 2” chunks, divided
16 clove
garlic, smashed, divided
2 stick
butter, divided
2 bottle
beer, divided
old bay seasoning or cajun/creole seasoning, to taste
salt & pepper, to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Precook potatoes, 10 minutes in microwave. Cool.
2
Heat grill to 400 degrees F. (you can do this in your oven, too, at the same temperature).
3
Evenly distribute corn, potatoes, shrimp & sausage between 4 heavy-duty foil sheets (approx. 12” x 18” each).
4
Add 4 garlic cloves per packet & drizzle melted butter & ½ bottle beer over each foil packet.
5
Season evenly (& generously), to taste with Old Bay/Cajun seasoning, salt & pepper.
6
Tightly seal foil packets by folding up the sides over the contents & tightly folding up the ends over the seam.
7
Grill 30 – 40 minutes or until potatoes are tender (be careful opening the packets to check for doneness, the steam inside is VERY hot)!
