  1. Heat grill Combine all ingredients in bowl and mix thoroughly. To assemble tear off a large piece of tinfoil, you want it at least 16 inches long. Fill the center and then you want to fold two center pieces over and then fold over at seam. Take ends and fold over. I used a smaller secondary pieces to cover the seams while cooking in order to keep the packet together. Takes about 30 minutes to cook on a low flame covered grill.
