Smoked Mashed Potatoes

Creamy, delicious, and smokey mashed potatoes! Easy to make, and a great crowd-pleaser.
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour 30 minutes

Cuisine American


  • 5-6 Russet Potatoes
  • 1/4 Cup Milk
  • 4 Tbsp Butter
  • 1 Tbsp Parsley
  • 1 Tbsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/2 Cup Sour Cream
  • Pepper to Taste


  • Cut the potatoes into 1-2 inch chunks.  If you don’t like potato peel, make sure to peel the potatoes first.  Place the potatoes into a large pot of boiling water.  Boil until they are fork tender.  Pull them off the heat when a fork can go through a chunk of potato with little resistance.
  • Drain the potatoes and pour them into a large mixing bowl.  Add the butter.  Mash the potatoes with a potato masher.  This will melt the butter and allow it to mix in as well.  Add the rest of the ingredients.  Continue to mash and stir the potatoes until they reach the consistency you prefer.  If you like a really smooth mixture, you can use a hand mixer to get rid of more chunks.
  • At this point, you can eat the mashed potatoes, but I like to take it a little farther.  There’s nothing better than a nice soft kiss of smoke.  Throw the potatoes into a baking dish.  I like to use a metal pie tin, as it is the perfect size.  Place the dish of mashed potatoes into the smoker anywhere from 225-250 degrees F for 30-60 mins.  I like to put them in with whatever protein I am smoking for the last hour, so they are ready at the same time.  Enjoy!

Oh, yes.  Creamy, delicious mashed potatoes.  Who doesn’t love that?  I’ll take them for Thanksgiving, Christmas, or any day of the year.  They go great with almost anything, which makes them one of the best sides.  You can throw gravy on top, or eat them plain.  Either way, they are a true crowd pleaser.

My favorite way to have mashed potatoes is with the potato skins still in.  The flavor and texture are delicious, and they are a little more healthy than just a plain potato.  The combination of parsley and other seasonings give these potatoes a little bit of a ranch dip taste.  Throw in 30-60 mins of smoke, and you have a masterpiece.  It is so good!

We love to have these potatoes with meatloaf, and they make great leftovers! Enjoy this creamy, and delicious recipe.
