Perfectly Baked Potatoes

To achieve the perfect baked potato, cook them for approximately 45 minutes on your pellet smoker or in the oven preheated to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Cooking time may vary depending on the cooking method, potato size, and temperature consistency.

To check if the potatoes are done, pierce them with a metal fork around the 45-minute mark. If the fork easily penetrates the potato with minimal resistance, your potato is ready. Keep in mind that smaller potatoes may cook faster than larger ones.
