Ingredients

  • Red potatoes try to use ones that are roughly all the same size
  • Vegetable oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Your favorite potato toppings

Instructions

  • Fire up your smoker for smoking at 250 F. Use a lighter fruit food such as peach or apple.
  • Toss the potatoes with a bit of oil. Season well with salt and pepper.
  • Place potatoes on the smoker and smoke until tender, 1-2 hours depending on size.
  • Remove potatoes and let cool slightly.
  • Place potatoes onto a cutting board or solid flat surface. Take a large skillet (cast iron works great for this) and gently push down onto the potatoes, flattening them out.
  • To crisp the potatoes, add a little oil to the skillet you just used and place over high heat (I put the skillet on my grill).
  • Add the potatoes and crisp on one side, 5-10 minutes. Flip and crisp the other side.
  • Serve hot with your favorite toppings.
