Summer just got really tasty.  You’re welcome.

There’s nothing easier than making hobo pouches for the grill.  A drizzle of olive oil, a bunch of protein, veggies and some sort of seasoning is about all that’s required. Seal it up, grill it and devour.  It’s one-pot cooking at it’s best (and easiest).  Our recipe for Tinfoil Shrimp Boil is easy to multiply if you’re having a bunch of people over.  Just load up the grill with packets and BOOM…dinner is served.
