Smoked Potatoes – this smoked potato recipe is buttery and delicious and is the perfect side dish for any meal! So easy!


  • 1.5 lbs baby Yukon gold or baby red potatoes, quartered or 1 inch chunks
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon marjarom


  1. Preheat grill to 225.
  2. Place potatoes in a medium mixing bowl. Add oil, salt, pepper, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder and marjoram. Stir to coat the potatoes.
  3. Create a foil boat and spray the bottom with non-stick or olive oil.  Pour the potatoes inside.  Place a dollop or two of butter (or ghee or plant butter) on top.
  4. Place on the smoker and close the lid. Let smoke for 1.5 – 2 hours.
  5. Increase smoker temp to 350 degrees F. and let potatoes continue to cook for 20-30 minutes – or until they have reached your desired softness.
  6. Remove from smoker and serve immediately.


  • Cook Time: cooking times can vary a lot with smoking recipes simply because there are so many variables at play which can impact time: humidity, temperature, hot spots on your grill, wind, etc.  After testing on a Traeger we found that after 3+ hours at 225 degrees F the potatoes were smokey, but not soft so we finished cooking them at a higher temp. This resulted in a smokey, soft potato – feel free to cook longer or less depending upon your smoker and your desired softness.
  • Add-Ins: feel free to add in some onions or garlic – both would be good in here!
  • Russet Potatoes: feel free to use russet potatoes if you want! They may cook a little faster, so just test the potatoes often for doneness!
