Low Country Boil-Like Grilled Foil Packets

Kimmi Knippel (Sweet_Memories)


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.

1 pkg
green giant extra sweet mini ears of corn-on-the-cob 12 ct. pack, divided
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


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