Smoke-Roasted Potatoes

Potatoes are a magical thing. You can top them so many ways. From simple, like this one, with just a little butter and sour cream, to the big time, with everything from mushrooms to cheese sauce to broccoli. Smoke-roasted potatoes have even more potato flavor than just regular old baked potatoes. The potato flesh come out tender, moist and creamy. The potato skin is crunchy, my absolute favorite. I love that pop of a great crunchy potato skin.
