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.

  • 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.

  1. Never thought about doing it this way, will have to try it soon. Christmas party soon [this weekend] and we volunteered to bring smoked cheese. [Wife volunteered me!!}.

  2. Had these with HGH’s prime rib Christmas dinner… these were amazing. Awesome kiss of smoke from the pellet grill… going to try the same with sweet potatoes.

  3. I have baby back ribs in smoker at 200 degrees o got veggies also just put patato on. First time I have tried a patato like everything I smoke I bet they will be great will let you all know tomorrow

  4. I smoked for 2 hours at 225 degrees and they were nowhere near done. I cooked afterward for 7 minutes in the microwave.

    I did, however, like the hint of smokey flavor.

    Next time I think I’ll microwave beforehand and finish in the smoker.

  5. HGH, I’m cooking for a family reunion this weekend. I want to try this but timing is crucial. Do you think 20 potatoes will take a bit longer? Sounds awesome, can’t wait to try. Thanks!

    1. How big is your smoker? As long as you’re not trying to cram them all in a space that’s small I think you’ll be fine! Maybe allow a little extra time just in case.

      1. It’s a basic pellet smoker, like 22 x 19 main rack. But I have jerky racks so I can go vertical too. I guess space between then is your point so convection works better. I will report on results. Thanks.

  6. Made them tonight for dinner with brisket- they were awesome- but I smoked mine for 3 hours and they were perfect

  7. We are going to make these tonight with the Chicken Challenge – is it okay to cook the potatoes at a higher heat? The chicken is supposed to cook at 375.
    This will be our first time using this smoker/grill.
