    Potatoes, Baked, Richard Fl

    I actually prefer to bake at 400F after I pierce them all over and rub with EVOO and coarse salt. The oil helps hold the salt and dry out the skin.The salt dries out the skin and the high temperature crisps it. about 45-60 minutes depending on size. Next I like butter, sour cream, scallions, bacon bits sometimes sharp shredded cheese.******* My friend likes butter, scallions, bacon, sour cream and black or red Cavia on hers. ********For sweet potatoes, I do not eat the skin, so foil or not depends on what else is happening. The foil keeps the juices from running over the cooking area. *****Each their own.

    i've never read the temp, but have used my thermapen. If it slides in and out easily, they are done.

    Usually I just squeeze them and see if they are soft.

    Baked potatos on the Egg are the best. It adds a nice mild smokey flavor, really reminds me of a steakhouse baked potato. I was doing them in the oven while I did steaks or chops on the Egg for the longest time... what a difference!!

    I just rub in olive oil then put some kosher salt on the outside. I've done almost every temp possible, if lower temp just takes longer but still comes out good. Indirect if possible, but if not still works. I've never checked the internal temp, I just give it a squeeze with a paper towel if it's soft, it's done.

    Could probably finish them in the oven if doing a super high temp cook, as long as ya have it on the Egg for 20-30 min to start it will still have that awesome flavor.
