I cook for myself at least 5 nights a week so don't feel bad. At least 3 of those nights my Performer gets fired up and sometimes my mini-WSM for just me some pulled pork to eat and freeze. If I'm lazy I'll get the gasser ripping hot but that's pretty rare, can't beat real fire.
Never heard of smoking taters though. Sounds interesting, I usually just roast em in the oven after I dice and par-boil em.
