How to Smoke Baked Potatoes

Smoking baked potatoes may just be the easiest thing you do on your smoker. The only thing you need to worry about is maintaining temperatures around 225 degrees F on your smoker. You can use pretty much any hard or fruit wood you like for smoking and the potatoes will pick up the perfect kiss of smoky flavor.

The best thing about this method is that you can toss your seasoned potatoes on the smoker alongside whatever else you are cooking. Meat and potatoes are the ultimate duo, right? I’ve cooked these alongside prime rib as it smokes and it makes for the most amazing meal. Smoked ribs, brisket, pulled pork… all of these are perfect smoked potato accompaniments.
