  1. Preheat barbecue for medium-high heat.
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk in the flour, salt, seasoned pepper and celery seeds; cook and stir for 1 minute. Gradually whisk the milk into the flour mixture and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook and stir until the mixture is thick and bubbly, 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. Stir in the potatoes, onion and green pepper. Pour the potato mixture onto a large sheet of heavy duty foil. Sprinkle with paprika. Fold the foil loosely around the potato mixture and seal tightly. Grill on covered barbecue, turning the parcel every 15 minutes, until the potatoes are tender, about 45 to 50 minutes.
