    Hello, fellow smokers.

    This is my first post. I'm currently smoking a flat-cut brisket, and i have about 3 hours left. Can I wrap up some baked potatoes and throw 'em in there, too? If so, how long should I cook 'em at the 210 degrees I'm using for the brisket?

    Thanks in advance,

    Hey Husker, K-State here [​IMG] . Throw some on, it'll take an hr or so. I like to poke holes or cut slices in my baked potatoes then drizzle on some veg oil/evoo then some k.salt and pepper. You can wrap or not, anymore I do 50/50 wrap in foil and on the smoker. There done when you can squeeze them, they just get soft. You can get more "fancy" when you have more time, check out the thread WD put up.

    Welcome to SMF!

    I do baked potatoes in my smoker alot. They are great that way.....I scrub them like normal then I nuke them in the microwave for 10 mins. to soften them up... Helps speed up the cooking of them. I put them unwrapped on a baked potato stand I have..... I just put them in with whatever I am smoking till they are how I like them.... They are awasome..........I love them in the smoker better then in the oven..........

    Just did some sweet potatoes tonight. Around 1 hour in smoker, then wrap in foil for another hour, then out for 15 minutes. Test for doneness and chow down.

    At what Temp did you cook your potatoes?
  10. Thanks for the info I was looking to throw in a couple of taters with the ribs.
  11. I tried the links in some of the posts above but it only directed me to the home page. I'm guessing that I'm doing something wrong. Got my wife all horned up for twice smoked potatoes now and I wanna make sure I do them right. Thanks!

    Husker, I either cut slices across the Potato enought to leave it together (use chopsticks on either side to prevent cut through), spread the parts and add S/P&Butter , place in a piece of foil to make a boat and smoke till tootopich soft ( 1.5 to 2hrs.) A little rub on them helps the taste .

    Or I cube Potatos and Onion and a bit of Garlic in a foil paoch with S/P& Butter and place in for 2hr., most delicoius... Potatoes can be replaced with Squash, Yams , Carrots ,or most any root crop.

    Temps. must be over 200° to cook in a timely manner. This works on a Grill also and does well to ammend the meal.

    Have fun and...

    I do the 10 minute microwave trick myself, definately do twice smoked taters if you got the time - they are awesome!

    In that case, to hell with the smoker!
  16. Thanks Scarbelly! I never even noticed those posts were 4+ ears old.

    I just threw a bunch of small potatoes into the smoker for potato salad. I'll let ya'll know how it comes out. They will go with the babybacks tomorrow. I will also try a twice smoked potato tomorrow. I know, a lot of potatoes! Some of this is "research" for upcoming get togethers. It's all in the name of science!

    This forum has been great so far! Educational & inspirational. I still can't post any pics for some reason. I did some Cowboy Crab legs (smoker) the other night and tried to post it in the seafood section. But the pic will not load.
