Smoked baked potatoes are the tastiest potatoes you’ll ever eat! Soft and fluffy with perfectly seasoned skin.
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.
Smoked Baked Potatoes Recipe
- 6 large Russet potatoes
- 4 Tablespoons olive oil
- 2 teaspoons coarse salt
- 2 teaspoons black pepper
Preheat your smoker to 225 degrees F. Really any wood works well with baked potatoes. You can experiment to see which is your favorite.
Wash and dry your baked potatoes. Pierce with a fork on all sides. Drizzle with olive oil and rub all over the skin of the baked potatoes. Season each with the salt and pepper.
Place the potatoes on the smoker at 225 degrees F. Close the lid and smoke for 2 hours or until the potatoes pierce easily with a fork.
