Sweet Potatoes

I can't seem to locate a how-to BGE method for sweet potatoes. Could someone point me in the right direction. Thanks


  • CalTex, I'm sure glad you asked that question. I'm gonna keep a good eye on the responses 'cause I want to know too. Like most farm raised Louisiana boys, I grew up on sweet potatoes. Love 'em and have one now and then, but I haven't tried baking one in the Egg yet. Might just do one for me tomorrow tho with the briskit.

  • Spring Chicken,
    I saw a reference on this site to a tried and true way of smoking sweete potatoesv alongside your brisquet. I want to do the same tomorrow. I am having a BGE-recipe fest for LD. I have 4 different Cue sauces (Jim Jack's, Elder Ward's NC Pulled pork, Big Al's Cue Sauce, and Leticia's) and I've rubbed 3 spare rib racks with Cat's Rub and 3 racks with JJ's rub. We plan to vote on the best combo - though I'm sure they all have special virtues. Stay tuned for the poll.

    Peel them, split them in half lengthwise and put a ton of butter and dark brown sugar on them. Wrap each half separately in foil and punch a small hole in the top to let the steam escape. Cook at around 350 degrees for an hour or so until tender.
