    love the avatar, lmao did have to look twice ha ha

    baked potato is the best, usually rub mine in oil first then salt before poking holes in them, yours is probably healthier. did like the topping possibilities some new ideas there

    Can sea salt be used in place of kosher salt? I'll pray over it.

    Hmmm, I thought that Joy of Cooking's "wash, vent, rub with butter & cook directly on the rack for an hour" recipe was the ultra of which there was no plus. But this I have to try.

    Do these come out like the incredible baked potatoes at Outback Steakhouse? I've always wondered how to "salt bake" potatoes. My hubby is gonna be sooooooooooo happy.

    Kosher salt can be found in your grocery store in the spice isle next to the "regular" salt. It is a little coarser that table salt. Link to photos: http://www.mortonsalt.com/products/foodsalts/Coarse_kosher.htm
