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 Tablespoon kosher salt
  • 3 Tablespoons canola oil
  • Butter
  • Bacon bits


  1. Add the previously cleaned and sliced potatoes in a large bowl and coat them with canola oil. Then, heavily sprinkle the salt.
  2. Set your smoker to 320°F (160°C) and preheat it for 15 minutes.
  3. Place the potatoes on the rack and smoke then for 60-75 minutes or until they are soft in the middle (test with a fork). You can use mesquite bisquettes for this recipe.
  4. Serve it with your favorite toppings. We recommend butter and bacon bits!
