Very good! Rubbed the potato with olive oil instead of using cooking spray.

The thing I did different was to bake the potatoes rubbed with kosher salt and olive oil. Then I took the pulp out and baked the skins until they were crisp on both sides. Made a big difference in taste.

Really good method for making potato skins for those that have never done it.
