Thumbs up Re: Jacket Potatoes

P de D
I personally don't like to cook spuds (slang down here for potatoes) too hot because you can burn the outsides without cooking their centres. They are not as nice to biter through the tender outer layer to a more raw uncooked centre. OK, you can scrape off the burnt coating, but you then lose the most tasty and wholesome part, the skin from the basic food.
I prefer to cook them a little slower, often without wrapped in foil, but it does take longer and a couple of changes of coals and hot ash around the campfire.

Default Re: Jacket Potatoes

I take the oven up to around 400F and keep a small fire burning.

Use the baking tray method, it's the clear winner.
Just keep checking them with a knife.

Worth a try though.
