smoked baked potato soup


  • 6 Large russet potatoes

  • 12 Ounce bacon

  • 4 Tablespoon butter

  • 1 Small onion, diced

  • 1/4 Cup flour

  • 4 Cup milk

  • 1 Can chicken stock

  • 1 Teaspoon onion powder

  • 1 Teaspoon garlic powder

  • 2 Teaspoon salt

  • 1 Cup sour cream




When ready to cook, set the Z Grill to 375℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.


Poke potatoes with a fork and place directly onto grill grate. Cook for 1 hour. At the same time, cook bacon on a baking sheet for about 20 minutes; remove, cool and cut into 1/2” pieces.


Once potatoes are done, remove and allow to cool for 15 minutes. Carefully peel potatoes and cut into 1” pieces. Set aside.


Heat butter in a large dutch oven. When melted and bubbly, add the onion and sauté until translucent, 5-7 minutes.


Add flour to the butter and onion mixture and sauté for 1 minute before slowly adding the milk and chicken stock, 1/2 cup at a time. When all the liquid is incorporated, add the onion powder, garlic powder, and 2 tsp salt.


Place the potato pieces into the soup and mash with a potato masher until incorporated but still a little chunky. Add the sour cream and 3/4 of the bacon, reserving some for garnish.


Garnish soup with additional ingredients and serve warm. Enjoy!
