A lot of people who make their own homemade wedges or fries tend to do either oven bake or grill them, but today I want to do away with all of that and move things outside.

These wedges offer the same crunch and flavor that regular wedges do, but them being prepared on the grill adds a whole new level of taste to it.

With the sear of the grill’s high heats and the smoke from the hickory wood chips, this wedges are the way to go.

They’re prepared with a blend of oil and seasoning to give them a natural crisp as they cook. For me, it’s this finish that makes them so addictive.
