Pulled Pork Twice Baked Potatoes

Leftover pulled pork just met its match. Our Pulled Pork Twice Baked Potatoes are the perfect thing to make those leftovers take on some new life. This all-in-one meal is great for gatherings, cookouts, or just a fast weeknight dinner option that your whole family will love.

Pulled Pork Twice Baked Potatoes

Let’s talk about one of my favorite recent dinners, bringing all the cozy and comforting vibes to the table – Smoked Pulled Pork Twice Baked Potatoes. The heartiness of tender, fluffy smoked Russet potatoes mixed with a creamy, cheesy filling, then topped with tender smoked pulled pork that’s been slow-smoked for all the flavor you can handle. It’s a recipe that combines the homely comfort of baked potatoes with the bold flavors of a barbecue favorite, making it an irresistible choice for both weeknight dinners and gatherings with friends and family.

When I stumbled upon the idea of combining two of my all-time favorites – baked potatoes and pulled pork – into one dish, I knew I had to share it. The process is simple but the outcome is extraordinary: soft baked potatoes hollowed out and mixed with all of my favorite twice-baked potato filling, then we pile on the smoky pulled pork. This dish is about embracing the richness of flavors and textures, creating a meal that’s not only deeply satisfying but also so easy to make, whether you’re firing up the grill outside or setting the air fryer or oven to cook indoors.

I love recipes using leftover smoked pulled pork because it is just as easy to make a massive amount of pulled pork as it is to make a small amount, so why not make extra and really get some use out of it?

  • 2 cups cooked shredded pulled pork
  • 4 large Russet potatoes washed and dried
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese divided
  • 4 tablespoons chopped green onions or chives


  • Preheat your pellet grill or smoker to 375°F. You can also use an air fryer for this if you'd rather, and your air fryer is big enough.
  • Coat the washed and dried potatoes with the olive oil. Place onto foil and sprinkle with the salt on all sides.
  • Poke some holes in the potatoes so they don't explode while cooking. Thank me later.
  • Cook in your preferred cooking tool until a wooden skewer can be easily inserted all the way through the potato. This will vary based on your cooking method, the outside temperature, and how big your potatoes are.
  • While the potatoes finish cooking, reheat your smoked pulled pork.
  • When the potatoes are done, remove the tops and scoop out the insides.
  • Mix with the butter, sour cream, half the cheddar cheese, and the chives. Carefully spoon this mixture back into the potatoes.
  • Heap the shredded pork shoulder on top and top with the rest of the shredded cheddar cheese.
  • Place back into your cooking tool of choice and let it cook for about 10-15 minutes, or until all the cheese is melted and the insides are hot.
  • Remove and enjoy! Drizzle with your favorite BBQ sauce, if desired.
