When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until a fire is established (4-5 minutes). Turn temperature to 375 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 minutes.
Poke potatoes with a fork and place directly onto grill grate. Cook for 1 hour. At the same time, cook bacon on a baking sheet for about 20 minutes; remove, cool and cut into 1/2 inch pieces.
Once potatoes are done, remove and allow to cool for 15 minutes. Carefully peel potatoes and cut into 1 inch pieces. Set aside.
Heat butter in a large dutch oven. When melted and bubbly, add the onion and sauté until translucent, 5-7 minutes.
Add flour to the butter and onion mixture and sauté for 1 minute before slowly adding the milk and chicken stock, 1/2 cup at a time. When all the liquid is incorporated, add the onion powder, garlic powder and 2 tsp salt.
Place the potato pieces into the soup and mash with a potato masher until incorporated but still a little chunky. Add the sour cream and 3/4 of the bacon, reserving some for garnish.
Garnish soup with additional ingredients and serve warm. Enjoy!
