Smoked Smashed Potatoes

Small red potatoes
(or any variety you prefer)

Olive oil (or vegetable oil)
Barbecue rub of your choice
How to:
1. Preheat your smoker to 300 degrees Fahrenheit (150 degrees Celsius) using hickory pellets or your preferred wood pellets.
2. Wash and dry the potatoes, then place them in a gallon-sized ziplock bag.
3. Add about 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the bag, seal it, and shake it to coat the potatoes evenly.
4. Add 2 tablespoons of barbecue rub to the bag, seal it again, and shake to coat the potatoes with the rub.
5. Place the oiled and seasoned potatoes on the smoker and cook for about 45 minutes, or until they are fork-tender. 
6. Remove the potatoes from the smoker and use a potato masher or flat spatula to gently smash each potato flat.
7. Increase the smoker temperature to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius) and return the smashed potatoes to the smoker.
8. Cook the smashed potatoes for an additional hour, or until they are crispy on the outside.
9. Serve the barbecue smashed potatoes as a side dish with your favorite barbecue meats.
