Cook time 35 mins|
Pack some smoke flavor into this simple side and bring it to your next backyard BBQ. Russet potatoes are smoked then roasted on the Traeger before getting tossed with a creamy mayo dressing.
2 lb RUSSET POTATOES
2 tbsp OLIVE OIL
1 tbsp KOSHER SALT
1/2 tsp BLACK PEPPER
2 cups MAYONNAISE
1 tbsp DRY MUSTARD
1 tbsp WHITE WINE VINEGAR
2 stalks CELERY, CHOPPED SMALL
2 HARD BOILED EGGS
1/2 RED ONION, CHOPPED SMALL
1 tbsp CHIVES, CHOPPED
Scrub the potatoes under cold water with a vegetable brush. Coat potatoes with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
When ready to cook, set temperature to 180℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes. For optimal flavor, use Super Smoke if available.
Spread potatoes out on a sheet pan and place in the grill. Smoke potatoes for 15-20 minutes.
Remove the potatoes from the grill. Increase the grill temperature to 450℉ and preheat with the lid closed.
Place the tray of potatoes back on the grill and cook for an additional 20-25 minutes or until tender.
When the potatoes are tender, remove from grill and set aside until cool enough to handle.
Using your hands and a towel, remove the potato skins and cut into large chunks.
Combine potatoes and remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Taste for seasoning and adjust with salt and pepper if needed.
Cover with plastic wrap and transfer to the fridge until cooled. Enjoy!
