  • Large Russet Potatoes
  • Olive Oil
  • Fresh Ground Garlic Salt


  • Wash and pat dry your potatoes, you will want to do this to make sure that you have removed all the dirt off of them.
  • Start your smoker rolling smoke, I used Mesquite pellets but you can use any flavor of pellets to smoke your baked potatoes.
  • Once I had my Pellet Grill rolling smoke I set it at 225 degrees with the P Setting at P7.
  • Take a fork or a long kabob skewer and stab each potato over and over. This will allow the moisture to escape but also for the smoke to go into the potato as well.
  • Next rub down your potatoes with olive and then grind salt over them. 
  • Set on your rack in your smoker and allow to smoke for at least two hours.  If you want you can rotate them but I prefer to set it and forget it.
  • Test the your potato being done with a fork before removing from the smoker.
  • Serve and enjoy!!

How Long Smoke Baked Potatoes

Now you will get a couple different answers on this one. I googled quite a bit before doing this. You can turn the temperature up to 375/400 and be done in an hour. However at 225 for 2 hours will allow the most flavor and I have to say it was spot on for skin crisp and smoke flavor of the potato.
