I did a Bake Potato on the Big Easy

I knew it could be done and have now documented times and temps to do so.

I fired the Big Easy with 2 Potatos with salt, pepper, and Olive Oil. At the same time I fired some Coals on the Kettle with Weed Torch.

In the time the coals got ready and a couple of NY Strips cooked the Potatos were cooked to perfection. Baked and crispy skin and tender potato meat inside. Wow. Took about 25 minutes from start to finish.

This is cool cus I want to do a Beef Roast on Big Easy with Potatos too.

The Potatos were cooked when I think they hit 220 degrees internal or about 25 minutes.

Here is a slide show. No video and only about 1.5 minutes long.

That looks very good Mike. How hot was the Big Easy running to get those spuds done that fast?

Thanks Boy
Thanks guys.
Like I said I was testing to see if it would work and how long it would take. I need more racks to stack stuff so if you buy a toaster oven and it don't got a rack in it....

I'll get my welding buddies to cut me some rectangles of extruded Stainless Steal while he's making my Charcoal Basket. Sweet! I just thought of that. Yes!
