Variations Ideas

  • Potatoes – We like using Russet Potatoes, but you can also use Yukon Gold Potatoes or Sweet Potatoes.
  • Seasoning – We used simple seasoning to rub on the potatoes. But feel free to use your own. Instead of oil, you can mix melted butter with fresh herbs.
  • Cheese – Shredded cheese is what we prefer, but you can also top the smoked potatoes with small slices of cheese, pepper jack cheese, or Colby Monterrey jack Cheese.

Step by Step Instructions

  • Step 1 – Preheat the smoker to 225°F.

Step 2 – Wash the Russet potatoes thoroughly and pat them dry. Make slits in the potatoes with a sharp knife, about ⅛ inch apart, being careful not to cut all the way through.

Step 4 – Place the potatoes in the smoker. Once the potatoes are almost done, sprinkle the grated cheddar cheese into the slits and cook for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

  • Step 5 – Remove the potatoes from the smoker and let them cool for a few minutes.
  • Step 6 – Top each potato with crumbled bacon strips, chopped chives, and a dollop of sour cream.

Recipe Tips

  • Cutting Slits – Make sure to evenly space out the slits and not cut them all the way through. This is key for getting that classic Hasselback look where the potato fans out a bit as it cooks. Plus, it lets all those tasty flavors seep in nicely.
  • Cooking Time – The cooking time may vary depending on the size of the potatoes and the exact temperature of your smoker.
  • Wood Chips – Feel free to use any type of wood chips you prefer. We recommend hickory or apple wood chips.
