I was digging around the freezer the other day and found a lost package of pulled pork. Wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it. Didn't feel like nachos or tacos or quesadillas. Mrs. G showed me a recipe in her Southern Living for twice baked potatoes with bbq pork. Sounded like a winner to me. Baked the potatoes to 210F (my oven is off so I go by temp not time) and let them cool. Mixed the pork with the taters that we scooped out, some milk, cream cheese, pepper jack cheese, green onions and 3 tsp Ranch dressing mix, restuffed them, added about 1/2 cup of cheese on top and baked a little longer, 15 to 20.


Drizzled a bit of Stubbs BBQ sauce on top and dinner was served.


I guess I coulda/shoulda baked them on the Egg, but I was lazy. At least the pork was done on the Egg. I know its not something new and earth shattereing, but it was still darn tasty. And I got to use up some leftovers, I have one more for lunch and even froze two for some future time. :)

I love baked and twice-baked potatoes, and the addition of some sort of barbecue is a great idea! I'm definitely going to have to give this a try sometime and the recipe's online, which makes it easy. In fact, a recipe search at the Southern Living website turned up a number of twice-baked potatoes...many of which I bet would adapt nicely to the grill!

Oh man...did I forget to include that link to the recipe? Whoops. I meant to. All we did different (that I can remember) was to add 3 tsp of ranch dressing mix instead of 4 (we had a packet already opened, didn't want to open another one). and we used 8 oz of cheese. I think we used the amount they called for and then used the extra on top to finish off the 8oz bag.

Man, that looks good. I haven't tried adding meat, and I never would have though of the Ranch. We like to do twice-baked potatoes by smoking them first while we're doing something like ribs, and then doing the second part indoors.
