Baked Potato Help Needed

I am planning on cooking pork ribs this week low and slow, 250 F for about 5 hours as per Outdoor Home recipe.  I would also like to do some baked potatoes at the same time.  I have baked a lot of potatoes on the BGE, but never at this low a temperature and seldom indirect.  Is this feasible, and if so, how long should I plan for the potatoes?

    Yes, you can.  Baked potatoes done temp is 210deg.  I would wrap in AL foil, and plan on baking for around 2.5-3hrs.
    If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.

    i would plan two hours with a microwave finish if needed or have a 450 degree oven on standby. if they came out early i would still have the oven ready

    Put a slit in them, wrap in foil and out them on with your ribs. 
    Take the foil off with around an hour left. 

    They’ll finish nicely.

    This is my go to method the skin is as good as the inside, real easy to throw on for the last couple of hours. 
  • Thank you all for your assistance.  I will let you all know how they come out after our Friday night dinner of low and slow pork ribs and baked potatoes.

    No cooking devices other than an Easy-Bake oven with a 75 watt incandescent light bulb.

  • I took a bit of all three comments into account and did the following. I did a cross-hatch on each potato, butter, salt pepper and wrapped in foil and introduced them into my 250 F low and slow 5 hour rib cook after 2 hours.  After 2.5 hours, took the potatoes out, unwrapped them and put them back on for the last 30 minutes.  They were pretty good, but would have been better if I had untapped them after two hours, the skin would have been crisper.
    Thanks to all for your suggestions.   Grandpa Bruce
