Smoked Potato Salad with Beer and Bacon

I was smoking up some Chocolate Porter Ribs, and thought to myself, “Heck, why not a smoked potato salad?” So, I cubed up some Yukon Gold potatoes and chopped some sweet onion, dashed them with Eric’s Wicked Seasoning, and throw it into the smoker. What would kick this over the top, though? Bacon! And Beer! That’s right, I added a bit of the Tramway Rye Pale Ale from the Philipsburg Brewing and a heap of peppered bacon. The salad…it ROCKED!
