I was having the gluey problem [is that at word???],did a search and found a "dissertation" on the proper method - wash, oil optional, salt, bake bare no foil - the trick [according to this writer] was that when you open the potato - you 'karate chop' it down the middle - something about letting all the steam escape at once...perfect dry baked potato...am going to try the method again tonight - with a selection of cheese, bacon, scallions, sour cream butter and chili....it makes a great meal and there's nothing better to me than a perfect baked potato - skin and all!
