CAN YOU USE OTHER MEATS FOR HOBO PACKETS?
Absolutely! Chicken would work great as well as lean ground beef or even lean pork. I say lean meat because you don’t want the meat to produce too much grease while cooking.

- Also, another good tip to keep your meat from getting dried while cooking is to add a large ice cube on top of the meat.
- Fold up each of the sides to make a nice little bed for the potatoes, making a square.
- So none of the butter and oil can escape while cooking.
- Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
