Make these easy smoked baked potatoes right out on your pellet grill or smoker.
One thing I’ve grown to love is that I can easily make Smoked Baked Potatoes right alongside any of the smoked meats we make too.
When making Smoked Baked Potatoes, they will take about 4 hours at 225*F, which means about an hour or so into smoking your favorite meats, you can just add these right to the smoker.
They will be done at the same time as your smoked meat.
These were made in a pellet grill with a mixture of pellets, the grill can be prepared with any pellets that you prefer.
Tips for Making Smoked Baked Potatoes:
I’ve mentioned before that my all-time favorite method of cooking baked potatoes is in the air fryer; however, if I’m making smoked meats, it’s much easier to put them on the smoker right along with the meat.
Remember that these baked potatoes will take at least 4 hours to cook on the smoker at 225*F, which means it will not be a quick-cooking method.
The first step is to cut sheets of foil to fit around russet baking potatoes, we also coat the sheets with a little bit of olive oil spray too. Then, simply wrap up the potato with foil and place them right on the smoker.
Let these slowly cook for 4 hours. I found this to be the best timing for the potatoes. They were nice and crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside.
These were made with larger-sized baking potatoes, if you are doing smaller russet potatoes then you may need to adjust your cooking time.
The potatoes can then be topped with any toppings of choice such as butter, shredded cheese, bacon, sour cream, and green onions.
Making these at the same time as the smoked meat turns out really well because you can easily serve it all together.
