Ingredients

  • olive oil
  • 6 jumbo russet baking potatoes washed, scrubbed & dried
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 bunch green onions thinly sliced
  • 6 oz cream cheese softened
  • 4 tbsp butter softened
  • 1 tbsp barbecue rub
  • 6-8 slices bacon cooked crisp & crumbled
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • smoked paprika optional

Instructions

  • Add all of the potatoes to a large mixing bowl. Drizzle them generously with olive oil. Using your hands, rub the oil into each potato.
  • Generously salt the oiled spuds. Set them aside.
  • Add some chips to your smoker, fill the water pan (if using) halfway full, and transfer the potatoes directly to the grates of the smoker.
  • Smoke the potatoes at 250 degrees for 3 hours, adding chips every so often as needed. At this point the potatoes should be fork tender- if not, let them continue cooking until they're tender.
  • Use tongs to carefully remove the potatoes from the smoker to a waiting plate. Let them rest just until cool enough to handle and sliced them evenly in half, lengthwise.
  • Using a spoon, scoop the centers out of the potatoes. Be careful not to tear the skin, and leave just enough layer of flesh on the potatoes so that they're not just skins & somewhat sturdy. Transfer the scooped flesh to a waiting mixing bowl. Continue until all the potatoes are done.
  • Using a potato masher, finely mash the potatoes in the bowl.
  • To the mixing bowl add the cream cheese, green onions, rub, butter, bacon, 1 cup of the shredded cheese, and the cream. Stir everything together until evenly incorporated & the filling mixture's creamy.
  • Divide the filling mixture evenly out among the potatoes until all are evenly stuffed.
  • Transfer the stuffed potatoes to a smoker safe baking dish. Sprinkle each potato with some smoked paprika, if using.
  • Top the potatoes evenly with the remaining shredded cheese.
  • Return the potatoes to the smoker, and smoke them for 30 more minutes or until the cheese is nicely melted and the filling is heated through.
  • Remove the potatoes from the smoker, serve them & enjoy!
