Perfect Baked Potatoes

Yesterday my office mate asked me how to bake the perfect potato. I had to
say I don't know! Sure, I can cook a spud, more or less. But the PERFECT

Obviously microwaving is out. I remember Joy of Cooking is very against
wrapping in foil. I think they say to oil and salt the skin, then puncture
the skin halfway through cooking.

Those of you who live in St. Louis, here is my goal: to match the potatoes
served at Tuckers in Soulard: a smooth, creamy texture that melts in your
mouth, with a wonderful buttery flavor that can be eaten plain! They are
truly perfect.

Who knows potatoes? What kind of potato do you use, what special
preparation, what temperature, what cooking time?
