Big thanks to Kaiden Blake (@kbs_outdoor_kitchen) for sharing this cool appetizer recipe with the community.

You Will Need

  • 8 Russet Potatoes
  • 1 package Bacon
  • 1 jalapeño, diced
  • 1/2 package Cream Cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded Cheese (one you like)
  • 1/2 cup chopped Brisket
  • Kosmo's Q Killer Bee Honey rub
  • Olive oil

The Prep

Let's get going! Cooking an appetizer should never take too long, so we'll keep things simple with this one. To prep the potatoes, wash them and cut the thick end off (about 1/4th of each potato).

Next, give a rack or cookie sheet a brushing with olive oil to make sure they don't stick. Place the potatoes on it with the cut end facing down. Brush with olive oil as well, and place the rack/cookie sheet on a smoker preheated to 350ºF (177ºC).

The Cook

Let the potatoes cook until they soften enough, then pull them off the heat. Once they cool down a bit, cut the other end off, and hollow each one out. You want to leave the bottom intact, to end up with something you can stuff.

Now we're getting to the fun part! Grab a large bowl and add the brisket, sour cream, jalapenos, shredded cheese, and cream cheese. Season with Killer Bee Honey to taste, and mix to combine. 

For the next step, wrap each potato with 2 pieces of bacon - secure with a grill pin or toothpick. Place the bacon wrapped potatoes back on the smoker (or in the oven) and crank the temp up to 400ºF (204ºC). Cook until the bacon is crispy to your taste.

The Payoff

Finally, once the bacon is done, stuff each hollowed out potato with your cheesy, creamy brisket mixture. Place the stuffed volcano potatoes on the cooker for an additional 10 minutes, and they are good to go!
