Can't remember which member offered these? Meowey?? These are basically smoked potatoes with an herb and spice rub. Sounds like barbecue to me. INGREDIENTS: • 8 baking potatoes (Yukon gold's are good for this) • 1 cup bacon grease, softened, not melted • HERB MIX: • 2 tablespoons ground sage • 2 tablespoons granulated garlic • 2 tablespoons dried parsley • 2 tablespoons salt • 2 tablespoons coarsely ground black pepper • 2 tablespoons sugar • 2 tablespoons paprika PREPARATION: Wash and dry potatoes. Rub warm, soft bacon grease into the skin of each potato, covering completely. Mix the herbs together; roll each potato in herb mixture, making sure to cover completely. Puncture each potato several times. Place on hot grill in a smoker, and smoke for 1 hour at 250 deg, turning once. Remove potato and wrap each in double layer of heavy duty aluminum foil. Seal the foil and place back in smoker for another 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until soft when poked. ** When I made these, my potatoes took longer. I omitted the 'foil step' and the potatoes were crunchy on the outside. These were the hit of the party. I'll definitely make them again.

A great sweet savory dish:
  • boil and mash a pot of sweet potato's or yams. (use butter and heavy cream when mashing)
  • put in one whole head of roasted garlic
  • 1 C of freshly grated parmesan (save a little for sprinkling on top)
  • 1/2 C of maple syrup
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • then put it all in the smoker with a little bit of apple smoke for about 1 hr.
It is a heavenly mix of salty, sweet, smokey goodness, all your guests will be amazed...... just don't count the calories! lol
