How to Smoke Baked Potatoes
The only thing you have to worry about when smoking baked potatoes is maintaining a consistent temperature.
It is one of the simplest things you can do on your smoker!
Any hard or fruit wood will work wonderfully for this since the potatoes will soak up the smoky flavor with ease.
The best thing about smoking baked potatoes? You can toss them onto the smoker alongside your main meat or other smoked sides.
Preheat the Smoker
Crank the smoker up to 225 degrees.
Any wood works for these so you can experiment to find your favorite but be sure to maintain a steady temperature.
Prepare the Potatoes
Wash your potatoes well and pat dry. Use a fork to pierce each potato on all sides before drizzling with olive oil.
Rub the oil over the whole potato and season with salt and pepper.
Smoke the Potatoes
Toss the potatoes onto the smoker and close the lid.
It should take around 2 hours for them to get done completely, but you can always check with a fork.
They should be tender enough that the fork slides in like softened butter.
Remove from the heat, top with your favorite baked potato toppings and enjoy!
