Looking for a delicious side dish for dinner tonight using pantry items you probably have in the kitchen? Look no further than these savory Smoked Potatoes. These potatoes are coated in butter - although vegetable shortening or bacon grease will also work – and then tossed with dried herbs. Then make the simple special by smoking them on your gas grill. We indicate a smoker box to house the woodchips in this recipe, but you can also use a foil packet with holes poked to let the smoke escape if you don’t have one.
