If you haven't done these yet they are a must EGG dish.The recipe is in the recipe section. The cedar flavor with he tators is incredible. No Eggshot today as it started to pour when the food was done. Here are the planked tators
I made a half batch.
Some premarinaded Lemon Garlic Pork Tenderloin from Wegmans
And the plated dish with a Romaine salad
The cedar even added a nice flavor to the pork ;)

    Always a great side dish. Here is my southern version.

    Potatoes, Mashed, Cedar-Planked, POYAMS, (Potatoes/Yams). Richard Fl

    Thanks to the recipes from Smokin' Lady and IBeeSmok'n, I have made this great side dish of mashed potatoes and yams. POYAMS!!.


    3 Large Yukon Gold Potatoes
    1 Large Yam
    Sour Cream
    Parmesan Cheese
    Bacon Bits
    Garlic Cloves, Cooked in foil pouch on BGE if time allows and mixed in..
    OR Garlic Powder
    Parsley/Chives for garnish
    Cedar Planks

    1 Peel the potatoes and yams. Cut into small pieces, 1 1/2 inch or so. Boil for 12-15 minutes, not mushy. Mash or use a potato ricer. Mix in melted butter, garlic, sour cream, parmesan cheese, bacon bits, seasoning.
    2 Take pre-soaked cedar planks , an hour or so, and put poyams on them. Place in BGE 350 indirect for 30-40 minutes. Remove add butter, parsley/chives and serve.

    Servings: 6
    Preparation time: 30 minutes
    Cooking time: 30 minutes

    Slick There's another version floating around that uses ranch dressing, cream, cheddar cheese, and string cheese. I made them last week without the string cheese, added some garlic, fresh chives, and parsley. My wife and I both agreed that they were the best we ever tasted. The ranch dressing adds alot of flavor. I want to try it next time with sweet potatoes in the mix as previously suggested. You really don't need to worry about how much of each to add. Really depends on how many potatoes you have. I used about 2/3 Ranch dressing to 1/3 cream. The creamy salad dressing idea has me thinking that anything on hand would work, such as bleu cheese or parmesan peppercorn. Even if I don't plank them, I know that future mashed potatoes will no longer be "ordinary". Slick
