baked potatoes for 50
I'm cooking for the church again tomorrow and need to know about how long to bake the potatoes. I'm probably going to have three racks in the oven at one time with a total of 50 potatoes divided amongst them. I figured an hour at 350, but is that long enough given that many potatoes baking at once?

Sure would like them all to be done just before serving time!

Also, would you wrap each individually in foil or cover the whole pan, or forget the foil???

Any thoughts?

Hi, in the past when I was involved with a local organisation we would cook them at 400 for 1 hr to 1.5 hrs and we rotated the rack pans every 30 minutes. As for the prep, we scrubbed them and poked um and wiped them with a little oil and salted them. We did them foiled, foiled in pans and nekid just on the pans. Honestly didn't make a whole lot of difference. If you have the help wrap them if you have the time, it was the way I liked them the best. Cook them till they hit 205 or just a tad more and you should be alright. If you have to hold them in a cooler then lower the pull temp as they will continue to cook in the cooler. Hope that helps that's just the way I did it and I am sure there are better ways. Have fun!
