Non egg related question about potatoes.

Hey everyone. 

I have been chosen to cook the baked potatoes for my grandmother in laws 70th surprise birthday party. I will be cooking about 30 baked potatoes. I usually just stick a couple in the oven at 450 for about an hour no foil. 

Im wanting to know will 30 potatoes cook in the oven in an hour just like 2 to 4 will or do I need to cook them longer than an hour?

Im also looking for any tips or suggestions on cooking that many baked potatoes.

Thanks everyone.

    2-4 potatoes will cook just as fast as 30. I like to rub some olive oil on them and then put on a good layer of coarse salt.

    I learned the olive oil and salt trick with no foil a few years ago. It makes the best baked potato. I grew up alway wrapping them in foil. They are so much better with no foil.

    Thanks for the input.

    should cook close to the same time but check internal temp to 210 to 215 degrees.

    After they have cooked...they will stay warm/hot for hours in a Coleman type cooler.

    I've done 28 for the family reunion. A little coating of oil and salt. Took just as Lon's as doing 2.

    That does sound good. I will have to try it next time I do potatos for me and the wife.
