smoked potatoes worth it? - Page 2

post #21 of 29

I now put red taters in the smoker pretty much every time I smoke something.  Rub in evoo and salt n pepper and in they go.  Even if they're not on the menu, I just put them in the fridge.  Can warm up later for baked tater, or chop and  fry them up in a little butter.  Like the twice baked idea.  Will have to do that soon.

Why do I read this kind of stuff when I am hungry? I wish I had read this BEFORE I spent ten hours working the stick burner. I guess there is always next time!

ok i know the rules that with no pic it didnt happen but our camera was lost .

we came across this thread and like the idea. but we were cooking chicken and to cook potatoes on the grill they wouldnt be done intime

so we got small red potatoes and boiled them for about half to 3/4 the time. then we started the chicken same with the corn.

but we shucked the corn down to one layer of husk  left on it. boiled it that way for a bit about half way.

now we put the chicken on the corn and the potatoes on started my heaving smoke in the beginning and cooked the chicken normal

when it was done we pulled it all off at the same time

results

chicken- always a show stopper

potatoes- interesting flavor

corn- omg this was outstanding the kids devoured it

 

but what was even better was the poatoes we smoked were even better cold.. oh yea baby smoked potatoe salad next time

 

now i want to try eggs.....anyone done eggs with out turning them to rubber balls

OK, what is in the foil next to the ham?  Where do you get a ham that isn't smoked already?  And how do you smoke eggs? (Are they hard boiled and peeled first, temperature, time, etc?) And are they good? :)

"OK, what is in the foil next to the ham?"

2# bag of mixed nuts from Fleet Farm.  I melt some butter in a pan, add some rub seasoning and your favorite hot sauce.  Put the nuts in a qt zip lok and pour over the butter concoction and mix it all together.  Throw in smoker w/ whatever else you're cooking.  EXCELLENT!   I now use the top of a broiler pan, which has all the slits in it, just to let the smoker roll through the pan.  Not sure if it matters.

 

"Where do you get a ham that isn't smoked already?"

It's store bought already smoked, just givin it some extra happiness.  I score it and brush some juices on it throughout the smoking.

 

"And how do you smoke eggs? (Are they hard boiled and peeled first, temperature, time, etc?) And are they good? :) "

Eggs are raw going into smoker.  I read to soak them in a equal mixture of vinegar/water 5min before smoking to open the shell pores.  Really don't know if that does anything, but have always done that.  Damn good!  I really don't know how long it takes them to cook, but typically do 220 around 2.5-3hrs.

I know this is an old post, but I know folks go looking for info in old posts all the time.  

 

I smoke potatoes all the time as my wife has gotten hooked on my smoked potato salad.  I will smoke twice as many potatoes as we need just so I can make a batch using day old smoked potatoes.  Best potato salad you could ever have...

I've smoked potatoes a few times.   Love the taste.    First off a regular russet potato does not absorb the smoke well because the skin is so thick.   I use the yellor or gold potatos.

I wash them and prick the skin a few places with a fork and put them in smoker at around 220 degrees.   When they start to get soft on outside (about two hours or so) the skin is dried out at that point.  I then take them and  brush on butter liberally.  sprinkle with a good seasoning blend (tony's),  wrap tightly with foil and return to smoker or oven to finish them off.   Once in the foil,  if in the smoker, I crank temp all the way up.  If I finish them in the oven I turn heat to 350 degrees. The best tasting potato you will ever bite into.
