    Smashed-n-Smoked Taters
    2-4lbs of New Potatoes
    (Prick them with a fork once or twice, let the chicken stock in.)
    4-6C Chicken stock
    Water
    Oil/butter
    Seasonings

    In a large stock pot place potatoes, add chicken stock and a palmful of salt
    (1 standard box of broth/stock equals 4C if not enough add water)
    Boil for 20 minutes, drain and cool
    Place potatoes on greased surface and lightly mash them flat
    But not too flat or they'll fall apart, about half their original height or a bit more
    Brush with oil, I prefer olive oil, butter or bacon grease
    Season with whatever you like
    Smoke at 250°-275° for 45min to 1 hour
    Use very light smoke, they take on a lot of smoke flavor

    Great idea John. Those sound really good. I've never tried smoking potatos, but I'll be trying this method soon--real soon.
