hmmm tin foil.....

I was wondering if anyone has used those Reynolds tinfoil hot bags for on the grill or oven? Do they work good. For some reason I thought I was told they arent worth it....

Is there any secret to them not exploding ect....

tannis, I'm not sure if this is the same thing as you're talking about but my aunt and uncle swear by the Reynolds roasting bags. They're plastic, not tin foil. They use them any time they cook a roast, ham, or turkey in the oven. They're supposed to lock the moisture in and sort of self baste the meat. I've never used one because when I roast something I usually go way overboard and buy a turkey or piece of meat so big it doesn't fit in the bag!

If they are what I think they are I seem to remember people saying they were not worth the money since you could make then yourself with regular aluminum foil.

I heard they work great, just not worth the cost, so your spuds should be excellent.

That is how I cook my turkeys. A perfect turkey every time.

I used to use the plastic ones quite a bit. They work great, but be really careful in opening them, because you can burn the devil out of your fingers.
