From Wikipedia. A set of intellectuals are asked to conceive of various bizarre ideas, such as the biggest jacket potato they can think of.

So the BBC's perfect baked potato , which is massaged with oil and rubbed with salt, in the manner of a Turkish bath, seemed a sure winner. I use British rapeseed oil , as olive seemed contrary to the whole ethos of the dish. It's more difficult to achieve an even coating with the salt than with a wet potato, but when baked, it has a better colour to it — as if it had naughtily taken advantage of the sunbeds too. The results, however, are just the same as Nigel's — satisfactorily crisp outside, and fluffy within, so the benefits of the extra fat, for once, seemed rather negligible.
Reluctant to let go of the fat idea, I also try basting a potato with melted butter before, and regularly during cooking, as suggested by posters on the cookery forum, chowhound. It's more time consuming, as the potato requires attention every quarter of an hour, which doesn't leave much time free for Nigel Slater's idea of sinking into a bath with a drink while dinner is cooking, but I'm impressed with the results — a skin so crisp it could fairly be described as a shell, and a perfectly cooked interior.
The only problem is that most of the salt gets knocked off during the basting. Another tip from the forums is brining — and, given what it does to bacon, it's safe to say I'm pretty interested. The American TV chef, and self-styled "kulinary gangsta", Guy Fieri, gives a recipe for "The Bomb Bakers" which calls for the potatoes to be soaked in a solution of 1 part coarse salt to 8 parts water for between 2 and 7 hours.
I do one for the minimum, and one for the maximum time, and then roll both in more salt, as directed, ignoring the number of government health warnings these potatoes are contravening.
I'm expecting them to be flabby, after such a long time submersed in water, but they're both up to Nigel's standard. I can't really detect any transfer in flavour to the flesh in either, however, and it's unclear how much of the flavour is down to the brining process, and how much to the outer crust of salt, so I bake a third, brined for three hours, and then half rolled in salt. The half without the extra salt has a nicer flavour — more subtly salty — but is less crisp, which renders the whole exercise pointless.
