Smoked Twice Baked Potatoes

If you’ve ever had a twice baked potato at a steak house, you know how special these spuds can be. Add some smoke to that equation, and you’ve officially met my favorite side dish. We took the best parts of the Smoked Baked Potato (the salty, crispy skin) and all the bacon, cheese and sour cream goodness of our Loaded Potato Skins and made a twice baked potato conglomeration that some of your family might just want to make into their whole meal.

Fire up your smoker and let it preheat to 350°F.

Load ’em up

Remove the potatoes from the grill and let them cool until you can handle them without torching your hands.

Scoop out the insides. Mix with the butter, sour cream, cheese, and bacon. Spoon that mixture back into the potatoes, top with some more cheese, and put back in the smoker until everything is melted and steaming hot again.



Remove from the grill and let cool for a few minutes before diving in.

Smoked Twice Baked Potato FAQ

Can I prepare the potatoes in advance and reheat them later?

    Absolutely! Once the potatoes are stuffed, skip the final smoke and refrigerate them for up to 24 hours. When you’re ready to serve, simply reheat them in the oven or on the grill at 350°F for about 20-25 minutes, or until heated through.

    There are lots of delicious options for toppings and mix-ins. Some popular choices include chopped green onions, chopped chives, or some diced jalapeños for some added heat. Feel free to get creative and customize your toppings to your liking.

    Can I make this recipe without a smoker?

    Yes, you can still enjoy twice baked potatoes without a smoker. If you don’t have a smoker, you can make this recipe in the oven and it’ll still be delicious!

    Prep Time 10 minutes
    Cook Time 1 hour
    Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes


    • 6 large russet potatoes
    • 2 tablespoons oil
    • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
    • 1/2 cup salted butter
    • 1/2 cup sour cream
    • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
    • 1/4 cup chopped bacon bits


    1. Preheat your pellet grill or smoker to 350°F.
    2. Wash the potatoes and pat dry. Poke a few holes in each potato. Rub with oil and coat with the kosher salt.
    3. Put the potatoes onto the grill and let cook for 30-45 minutes, or until they are tender when pierced with a skewer.
    4. Remove from the grill and let cool for 5-10 minutes.

    6. Mix the butter, sour cream, 1 cup shredded cheddar, and the chopped bacon bits into the scooped out potatoes. Mix until incorporated. Taste, and add salt as necessary.
    7. Spoon the potato mixture back into the potato skins and make sure they are heaped out the top.
    8. Put the potatoes onto a grill-safe baking sheet and top with the remaining shredded cheese.
    9. Put the potatoes back onto the grill and let them cook for 15-20 minutes, or until all the cheese is melted.
