Flip steaks after 4 min, brush with 1/4 cup of the barbecue sauce and grill until medium-rare to medium, 3 to 5 more min. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest, covered with foil, for 5 min. Cook potato packet, turning occasionally, until potatoes are fork-tender, 4 to 6 min. Cook onion until charred and mushrooms until grill marks form, 8 to 10 min. Transfer to a cutting board as they are done.
  • GRILL buns, cut-side down, beside veggies until toasted, about 2 min. Top each bottom bun with 4 slices of cheese and continue grilling until cheese is melted, 1 to 2 min.
