Anybody ever cooked sweet potatoes on the BGE?? If so, how? Thanks


  • We peel, slice, toss in olive oil, sprikle with Jamacian Fire Walk rub. Cook at medium heat (325) turning every 7-8 minutes on top of foil. If you don't have this rub use a little cayenne pepper.Potatoes will turn a dark brown almost chared when done. We prepare them this way at least weekly.
    Best Doug
  • I do them when I cook ribs. Put them in foil with some butter. They go on the egg when I start the ribs - when the ribs are done the sweet potatoes are quite nice. My wife loves them - I do baked potatoes the same way.

    Good way to do the sweet taters Bama...when done and you plate with a mix of cinnamon and sugar for a real nice for the regular spuds..toss the foil, rub in evoo, salt, pepper, maybe some john henry pecan rub and toss em on the regular spuds skin and all ;) I cook sweet taters and regular spuds to between 200-210 internal...
  • We cook them 350 raised grate cut into 3/4 in slices. Drizzled in EVOO with Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper. Turn evey 8 - 10 min. until done.
    Everyday is Saturday and tomorrow is always Sunday.
  • There are a ton of ways. Most are the same way you do them in your oven.

    However, I like them best when I wrap them in foil and bake them in my egg at 250 dome. Low and slow lets all that sweet goodness get happy..
  • I agree with the Wolf, low and slow. We poke holes in the yams and pour maple syrup and rum.....Awesome!
