I promise that you have never tasted a potato quite like a fire pit potato. Follow these easy steps and viola! Best potato you have ever eaten!

 

How about a little history on how the 'fire pit potato' came to be. Growing up in Idaho, tumbleweeds were a huge problem. They would collect everywhere. We would gather them up into huge piles and burn them. The fire would be intense and quick. We would throw potatoes (we, my dad) into the fire and at the end of the massive fire...we would have these black charged potatoes that had THE most delicious baked goodness inside.

Well, if you are around a camp fire - YOU can make these...no tumbleweeds required.
