2 pounds Idaho potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
3 tablespoons kosher salt
1 cup milk
4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1/2 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper

Cook the potatoes: Heat oven to 250 degrees. Place the potatoes in a pot and fill with enough water to cover. Add the salt and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer until potatoes are tender 12-15 minutes. Drain the potatoes, transfer to a baking pan, and place in the oven until thoroughly dried out 7-8 minutes. (Shake the pan occasionally to ensure all excess water evaporates.) Puree the potatoes: Heat the milk in a small saucepan until it simmers. Mash the potatoes until smooth, taking care not to overwork them. Alternately add the butter and milk in thirds - gently folding with a rubber spatula. Stir in the pepper.
