  • 5 Lbs Red Potato
  • 1 Lb Bacon
  • 32 Oz Cheddar Cheese
  • 8 Oz Medium Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/2 White Onion Chopped
  • 1 Cup Mayo
  • 1 Cup Sour Cream
  • Fresh Ground Garlic Salt
  • Fresh Ground Pepper


  • Start a large stockpot boil with water, this will need to be large enough to hold all 5lbs of Red Potatoes.
  • Wash off your potatoes and add to the pot of boiling water, once it is at a rolling boil.
  • Once your potatoes are boiled drain them and allow the potatoes to cool off, I let them set in an over the kitchen sink strainer.
  • While your potatoes are cooling start to prepare your bacon, I sliced mine up.
  • Cook up your bacon, I tried to leave it juicy since I knew it would cook more in the smoker in the pan with the potatoes.
  • Once your potatoes have cooled off cut them up into chunks and place them into a large bowl.
  • Cut your blocks of cheese into about 1/2 inch cubes.
  • Add your bacon and cheese to the mixing bowl with the potatoes and stir until it is well mixed together.
  • Add in your other ingredients and stir the mixture till it is mixed well.
  • Spray your baking pan, I used a 4.8 quart (10X15) to put mine in.
  • Spread your potato mixture out into the pan or pans.
  • Get your smoker ready to go and up to temp.  I smoked min on the smoker for 250 degrees for 85 minutes.
  • Serve and enjoy!
