  • 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.
