  1. Prepare the potatoes: Wash and scrub the potatoes thoroughly under cold water. Dry potatoes with a clean kitchen towel.
  2. Preheat the pellet grill: Preheat your pellet grill to 350°F.

Using a sharp knife, make thin slices across the potato, making sure not to cut all the way through. You want the slices to stay connected at the bottom. Aim for slices about 1/8 inch apart, like thick potato chips.
  4. Oil the potatoes: Spray or brush potatoes with olive oil, pulling apart potatoes, making sure to get it in between the slices.
