Pellet Grill Funeral Potatoes

For those who don't know, Funeral Potatoes are a simple hash brown casserole that somehow became a favorite for funeral potlucks. Simple to make, we put them on the pellet grill (or smoker) to add a dash of smoky flavor. This will quickly become a favorite and everyone will ask you to bring them to every future gathering, not just funerals.
