Cook to temp for potatoes?

Hello all,
Since beginning to cook on the egg I've become a huge fan of cooking to temp to determine when good is ready. Does anyone know what temp I should shoot for when cooking potatoes?

Thanks everyone

    210 IT for a fully cooked baked potato.

    That's actually a good question, I've always been able to judge when a potato is done by how easily a knife slides in/out.
    But, then, I do the same thing with my $95 Thermapen; when the brisket is perfectly done, I can tell with the buttah probe slide before even checking the temp!  
    :D

  • Thanks guys. I do a 'by feel' test for potatoes too, but it would be awesome to have an additional check as well. I'll give em a go at 210. I love potatoes on the egg.

  • Like Botch when the knife or Thermapen slide thru the food like butta, it is ready.  But if you need a # then anything over 200 is probably good.
