  • 4 medium potatoes cleaned
  • 1 Tb. olive oil
  • ¼ tsp cracked sea salt or Himalayan pink salt
  • 8-10 oz leftover pulled pork
  • ½ cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 Tb. fresh chives chopped
  • 1 green onion chopped
  • tsp. garlic powder
  • tsp. onion powder
  • tsp. salt


  • Clean potatoes and poke with a fork to create a steam vent. Drizzle olive oil and rub the potatoes to fully coat. Sprinkle salt lightly.
  • Bake potatoes in a 400 degree oven or over indirect heat in your smoker for about an hour until they can be poked tender with a fork.
  • Allow potatoes to cool for about 10 minutes. Then cut them in half the long way.
  • Use a spoon to scoop the inside of the potato out leaving about ¼ inch thick of potato still in the shell. Place the potato shells in an aluminum pan.
  • In a separate bowl combine the leftover pulled pork and barbecue sauce.
  • Spoon the barbecue pork into each of the potato shells. Top with a sprinkle of shredded cheese.
  • Return the potato skins to the grill for about 20 more minutes.
  • Meanwhile, combine the sour cream, chives, scallions, garlic powder, onion powder and salt in a small bowl.
  • Once the potato skins have finished and the cheese is nicely toasted, remove from the grill. Use the sour cream and onion dip as a topper or a dip.
