Has anyone smoked sweet potatoes? I'm sure someone has. Got any recipes/tips?
post #2 of 5
Aw -- it is that time of year in NC. I have an electric smoker. I usually cook about 2.5 hours at 225 -- about a med sized potato. Use whatever wood I need for the other items that are cooking. Never get much smoke flavor through the skin. Do not poke any holes. Usually throw a garlic bulb in with about 1.5 hrs left in the cook.

Then I take it out, peel the skin and add butter and brown sugar.

I need to get out to the farmers market soon...

Smoked Potatoes

These are basically smoked potatoes with an herb and spice rub. Sounds like barbecue to me.
• 8 baking potatoes (Yukon gold's are good for this)
• 1 cup bacon grease, softened, not melted
• 2 tablespoons ground sage
• 2 tablespoons granulated garlic
• 2 tablespoons dried parsley
• 2 tablespoons salt
• 2 tablespoons coarsely ground black pepper
• 2 tablespoons sugar
• 2 tablespoons paprika
Wash and dry potatoes. Rub warm, soft bacon grease ( I just use butter at times ) into the skin of each potato, covering completely. Mix the herbs together; roll each potato in herb mixture, making sure to cover completely. Puncture each potato several times. Place on hot grill in a smoker, and smoke for 1 hour at 250 deg, turning once. Remove potato and wrap each in double layer of heavy duty aluminum foil. Seal the foil and place back in smoker for another 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until soft when poked.
I like to open them up the last 1/2 hour or so to make the skin alittle more crunchy. Sweet potatoes work too and actually will take less time to do.
