What Are Mini or Fingerling Potatoes?
Baby potatoes. Fingerlings. Mini potatoes.

Our investigative team of pitmasters has done the digging for you. Any fingerling or itty-bitty potatoes you buy are mature and ready to go. In fact, they would never grow any bigger, so you are getting them in the prime of life.
One of the nicest aspects of making these smoked fingerling potatoes on your wood pellet smoker grill is that you can try different types of mini potatoes in your recipe. Check out the potatoes section in your favorite grocery store or farmer’s market. They come in a variety of colors, which will only add to the visual interest of your final dish.
