Okay, next weeks throwdown will be potatoes and will include sweet potatoes, yams, any potato products (like hash browns), and also things like potato breads or pancakes.....as long as they are cooked/baked on your cooker.

Anyone know what temp I should cook a potato to, and should I foil it?

I may have to break out my secret weapon, the thirdeye potato baking rack. You don't poke the nail all the way through the raw potato....and when the potato is ready it slips down and the nail pops out the top.

I cook mine on the BGE at 400 degrees for an hour...turning them once after a 1/2 hour...followed by a steak or two! The skin is to die for...especially if you rub them with some EVOO and sprinkle with a little salt!

I'm likin' the looks of Wayne's new toy too!

Default Baby Red...

OK here goes... smoked a pork loin stuffed with cranberries, apricots, pecans and gorgonzola for Christmas Eve din din... naturally baby red potatoes were one of the sides.

I put them under the roast on the WSM for an hour. Smoked with apple and cherry woods. Used a little EVOO, garlic, salt and pepper.

Out of the smoker after an hour and smelling good...

Has any one smoked a whole baker and had it turn out? I have tried it a couple of times and it is always tough. Any suggestions? Merry Christmas,

Not a whole lot to tell. A little kosher salt along with some Tuscan seasoning, drizzled with EVOO and a small pat of butter cooked on the Weber kettle.
