I'll be cooking babybacks--the 3/1/1.5 way, primarily at 250 degrees. I want to throw on a couple of medium-large russet potatoes. Can they be cooked at this low of a temperature? If so, how long should they cook & should they be wrapped in foil? Thanks.

    Birdman,[p]I give them a lengthwise cut almost through and a couple of cross cuts, again almost through. Stuff the cuts with butter, give a sprinkle of favored seasoning(s) and wrap in foil.[p]I would go for two hours minimum. They will be cook through, but will lack that nice fluffiness of a long cooked potato. Four hours would be approaching the maximum time, even with large russets.[p]Spin

    Birdman, as I recall, about 2.5 hours at 250 should do it - I have only done sweet potatoes wraped in foil on the BGE - for extra lo-cal potatoes, add a chuck of butter to each potato as you wrap it. Good luck! :~}
