- 2 pounds gold potatoes
- 3 cloves garlic
- 1/2 cup heavy cream or milk
- 1/4 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons butter
Peel and cut the potatoes into 2-inch chunks.
Boil the potatoes and the garlic in salted water until they're very fork tender but not falling apart. About 20 minutes.
Drain the potatoes and garlic and return them to the hot pot.
Meanwhile, warm the milk and cream in the microwave or in a pan on the stovetop.
Mash the potatoes then mix in the butter and as much of the cream/milk mixture as you like to get the potatoes nice and creamy and fluffy.
Season with salt and pepper, then transfer the mashed potatoes to a smoker-safe shallow dish.
Smoke at 225-F for about 30-45 minutes. You can smoke them at a higher temp but they won't be as smoky. For the best results, smoke them at 180-F or on super smoke for 30 minutes.
Serve and enjoy!
Chef Jenn's Tips
- The more surface area your mashed potatoes get, the more smoke flavor they'll absorb. Use a skillet, shallow baking dish, or wide casserole pan when smoking the potatoes for maximum flavor.
- Sliced green onions or chopped chives or parsley add a pop of flavor, freshness and color to this Smoked Mashed Potato recipe.
- Don't want all the fat from heavy cream? You can use all milk, instead.
