Quick question. If I put in baked potatoes now, will they still be edible (and not catch fire) if we eat them at 8pm. Fireworks tonight and want them to come back to. What temp please?

I would stick them in.Thye will be fine and have nice crispy skins. About 160 on my oven, not sure what that is on gas.

They will be fine.

If I am doing oven jacket potatoes for when the kids get back from school I put them in the oven at 200 while I am in and then turn them right down before I go out. I then turn the oven back up once home and they are ready to eat once the kids are ready.

If you've got metal skewers, poke them through as it helps distribute the heat and cook the insides more quickly.
