  2. Rub the potatoes generously with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place spuds on the cool side of the grill, and smoke for 1 1/2 to 2 hours until very tender, turning from time to time and adding wood as needed.
  3. Mash the spuds with the cream, butter, and garlic. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper. Leave them a bit lumpy for that Homestyle feel!
