German Potato Salad

How to make German Potato Salad

Oktoberfest may have officially wrapped up this week, but we’re not ready to give it up just yet. As the weather cools, this warm potato salad becomes a fantastic side dish to lengthen your grilling season!

German Potato Salad


  • 3 lb red skinned potatoes
  • Code 3 Spices Grunt Rub
  • Olive oil
  • 1 lb thick cut bacon, diced
  • 1 cup yellow onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup House of Q Slow Smoke Gold
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp wildflower honey
  • 1 tbsp garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup parsley, minced
  • kosher salt, to taste


Preheat your Yoder Smokers YS640 pellet grill to 400°F. Rinse and dry the potatoes. Rub the potatoes with olive oil, then season with Code 3 Spices Grunt Rub. Place on the second shelf of the grill and cook until tender when pierced with a knife, about 1 hour.

"Meanwhile, cook your diced bacon until crispy. Remove bacon from skillet, drain most of the grease, then cook the diced onion in the bacon grease until softened and translucent."

Whisk together the House of Q Slow Smoke Gold, vinegar, wildflower honey and garlic.

When the potatoes are tender, dice into bite sized pieces and toss with the dressing, bacon, and parsley. Taste and adjust seasoning, as necessary. Serve warm.

Simple grilled potatoes. A little oil, a little rub, a lot of flavor!

Just add bacon. Always add bacon!

Combined with an easy sweet and tangy mustard dressing, you’ve got an easy and lovable Autumn side dish!
