like them on the grill wrapped in foil with butter and onion inside. I also like them cooked in a pressure cooker with a roast. It seems to almost push the flavor of the roast into them.

Bake them hard , crisp skin, first, in a flame oven, then cut them up and put them in a pan with a roast and veggies, cooked with the lid closed.
Twice cooked potatoes are amazing.

the last decade or so, i've been putting them in the micro.
they get washed first, then put in nekked for 6-7 minutes
depending on the size of the potato. this is a 1100 watt micro.
then when that's over i wrap in a sheet of foil, shiny in, and
i set them on a pot holder and cover fairly tight with another
pot holder or doubled dish towel while i finish up the other
stuff. i've never had tough baked tater this way.
my mother came up with this method somewhere, but i don't think
it was her idea originally. it's worked in every microwave i've tried
it with.

( i should also add that this ^ ^ method makes 'em SCALDING hot! !
use caution when you unwrap it )

The United States doesn't have a gun control problem.
We have a people control problem.

Clean spud and leave wet, use Saran Wrap or any other type of microwaveable safe stuff, 7 minutes in the nuker for a good sized Russet; golds or Reds may take a bit less time. And voila, Bob's yer Unkl an yer tater is baked.
Or, in foil over a grill, rubbed and seasoned but the campfire special with them wrapped in some broad leaf and cooked in the coals is always a favorite. IMO only ....

Not a baked potato if cooked in boiling water or MW

Seriously, It will not taste the same if not done in the oven. Similar if cooked on a grill.

I don't think of myself as a staunch Republican or Democrat.
I am a Christian and a Conservative...........In that order!

Last time I asked the cook,she said ours did.When the wife is in a hurry, or just lazy,she cooks them in the micro. Not bad,but not as good.Something about that skin browning on the spud that gives them a better flvor.At least to me.
