Slow Cooked Barbecue Stuffed Potatoes

If you're anything like me, shopping with a bunch of kids tagging behind you in the summertime is at the very bottom of your what-I'd-just-love-to-do-this-summer list.  Thankfully, my little stockpile has been sufficient to save me from making way too many grocery runs with kids in tow this summer!  So, as I was hunting down a recipe to make this week, I decided it would be really nice if I could find something that we had ingredients on hand for, and this one fit the bill.

We had a few baking potatoes left over from grilling night last week, and thanks to our coupons have enough barbecue & Worcestershire sauce to last us at least until my son heads off to college.  (Okay, not really, but we do have quite a few bottles in the pantry!)   And as you may have figured out from the picture below I had two bottles of barbecue sauce all but cleared out in the fridge, so I let them sit upside down a bit to use up every last bit before throwing away those bottles.

  1. My husband loves baked potatoes, but I’ve never made them. (I personally don’t like potatoes unless they’re called french fries.)
    This recipe looks simple and I’m going to file it away to make when the weather cools down and we need something hearty.
    Thank you so much for sharing!
    P.S. I also have a large supply of barbecue sauce and, if you and I are anything alike, mustard also.

    I’ve made your recipe for Zesty Chicken Stuffed Potatoes which is similar to this recipe and it was delicious. I will have to give this variation a try as well! Thanks for sharing.

  3. I’ve seen on Pinterest where you can put Baked Potatoes in the crockpot on top of the meat you are cooking…I wonder if that would work with this? I’m gonna try it next week, and I’ll try to remember to let you know 🙂 Thanks for the recipe!

    • I actually had that thought today as I posted it Brandi…. it seems like it would work, but I hated the idea of cooking the potatoes on top of the meat, and didn’t really want to cook them in foil either? I was thinking it would be awesome if there was an attachment you could buy for your crockpot that could be a separate shelf on top (kind of like a grill grate!) If you try it, let me now how it goes! 🙂

      • It’s only a matter of time before I find something to act as a shelf in my slow cooker. It needs it!

        • If you figure it out, please let me know (there has to be something!!!)

          • I have seen that you can ball up foil and cook things on top of it. I haven’t tried it, but maybe an empty tuna can or two(covered in foil?) and used like a shelf, would work as well. I am going to try the BBQ stuffed potatoes recipe this week. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    • I recommend smaller potatoes if you do try it. The larger ones don’t cook as well.
      Just wrap in foil and put in the crock pot. I place a piece of foil over the meat first then add potatoes. or use a wire cooling rack as a shelf. I had one break so I just cut it to fit my crock pot.and I jb welded a couple of nuts to the bottom as feet.
