I love smoking meat and fish. However, can you make a great side dish like potatoes in smoker considering the lower temperatures. Of course you can.

I took a large baker potato and cut it into 3/4 inch cubes. I put them in a foil pan (you could also use a sheet of foil that you will fold into an envelope). I added 175 ml (3/4 cups) of thinly sliced onion. I mixed in 10 ml (2 teaspoons) Italian seasonings and 40 ml (3 tablespoons) olive oil.

I covered it in foil and put it in 230 F smoker.

I smoked for 2 hours removed the foil and then spread 175 ml (3/4 cup) cheese over the top. You can use whatever cheese you like. For this cook, I used Pepper Jack for a touch of heat.

I put it back in the smoker for 5 to 10 minutes to melt the cheese.

The Verdict

These potatoes turned out with a nice creamy texture. The onions and Italian seasoning give a good hit of flavour while the cheese makes it seem special. You could serve these at an informal cookout or a fancy dinner!
