Bourbon smoked mash potato

It was one of those really inspired ideas. Spicy potato wedges cooked on the grill. So to save time on cooking I par boiled the wedges thinking they would cook a lot quicker. Unfortunately I par boiled them for a tad too long and they turned to mush. With guests arriving soon and not enough time to do fresh I came up with a cunning plan. I drained the wedges and set to mashing them adding a touch of bottled smoke, salt, pepper, mixed herbs and a good slug of bourbon. The bourbon and the smoke was a great success and it was the first time any of my guests had had mashed potato at a barbecue cooked on the barbie.  Net time I may form the mash into cakes and crisp them up on the griddle before I serve them.
