How To Make Salt-Crust Baked Potatoes

It might be basic, but it’s anything but! A simple and easy-to-make side dish that is crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside.


6 Russet potatoes

1 Tbsp kosher salt

3 Tbsp canola oil


Bacon bits


Add the previously cleaned and sliced potatoes in a large bowl and coat them with canola oil. Then, heavily sprinkle the salt.

Set your smoker to 320°F (160°C) and preheat it for 15 minutes.

Place the potatoes on the rack and smoke them for 60-75 minutes or until they are soft in the middle (test with a fork). You can use mesquite bisquettes for this recipe.

Serve it with your favorite toppings. We recommend butter and bacon bits!
