Dug up my white sweet potatoes today. Several of them being around 3#  but 1 was 4.25# & would like to smoke it. Looking for ideas or recipes.

Can't remember which member offered these? Meowey?? These are basically smoked potatoes with an herb and spice rub. Sounds like barbecue to me. INGREDIENTS: • 8 baking potatoes (Yukon gold's are good for this) • 1 cup bacon grease, softened, not melted • HERB MIX: • 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 PREPARATION: Wash and dry potatoes. Rub warm, soft bacon grease 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. ** When I made these, my potatoes took longer. I omitted the 'foil step' and the potatoes were crunchy on the outside. These were the hit of the party. I'll definitely make them again.

A great sweet savory dish:


  • boil and mash a pot of sweet potato's or yams. (use butter and heavy cream when mashing)
  • put in one whole head of roasted garlic
  • 1 C of freshly grated parmesan (save a little for sprinkling on top)
  • 1/2 C of maple syrup
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • then put it all in the smoker with a little bit of apple smoke for about 1 hr.


It is a heavenly mix of salty, sweet, smokey goodness, all your guests will be amazed...... just don't count the calories! lol
