Ingredients for Smoked Potatoes
This recipe uses tender baby or “creamer” potatoes.
- Creamer Potatoes – Harvesting cream potatoes early keeps them tender. The small size makes them fun for the little ones and easy serving too. You could also cut up a big potato.
- Olive Oil – You can use butter for this too.
- Seasonings – We used a blend of garlic powder, oregano, thyme and parsley
How to Make Smoked Potatoes
- Prep Smoker – Preheat your pellet grill.
- Season Potatoes – Spray the foil pan with non-stick cooking spray. Add all of the ingredients into the pan – mix well and onto the smoker it goes.
- Smoke – Stir every 15 minutes. Cook about 45 minutes or until potatoes are cooked through.
What Pellets Should I Use When Smoking Potatoes?
We prefer a pellet with a strong smoky flavor like Hickory. Another great option would be a competition blend of pellets.
Pecan and Mesquite pair nicely with smoked potatoes too.
Tips for choosing creamer potatoes
- Creamer potatoes come in white, yellow or red varieties, choose your favorite.
- Look for plump potatoes, do not choose potatoes with shriveled skin or potatoes that are beginning to sprout.
- Avoid potato that have a “green” appearance. Those are not quite ripe and will not have good flavor.
- Choosing potatoes of a uniform size will ensure they will all be done at the same time.
How Long Does it Take to Smoked Potatoes
Only about 45 minutes! Just about the time it takes to put together a few wonderful eats to serve alongside.
This is because the creamer potatoes are smaller than when we smoke a whole potato making it the perfect side dish for weeknight meals.
How to Store Leftovers
Place any leftover smoked potatoes in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.
Ideas to use Leftovers Up!
Leftover potatoes are great for breakfast, lunch or dinner! Adding leftover potatoes to a quiche, frittata or breakfast casserole is a great way to stretch out a meal and adding additional flavor and texture.
We love hash and with all the seasoning that is on these potatoes would be a perfect addition to any leftovers you might!
What is the best method to store fresh potatoes?
- Store potatoes in a cool dark place – not the refrigerator! The cold temperatures of the fridge will turn the starch of the potatoes into sugar. They become sweet and can discolor when cooked.
- Potatoes will keep at room temperature for up to two weeks.
- Best bet? Buy as many as you’ll use in a week.
- You can never beat a fall off the bone rack of Smoked Ribs.
- Go the traditional route and make this juicy Smoked Meatloaf. You’ll never make it another way.
- Pair it with these easy Smoked Vegetables that are seasoned and smoked.
