    I had the idea come to me today cause I got some organic sweet taters in my CSA box and want to eat them them, but it's HOT out and don't wanna turn on even the toaster oven. So I thought, "I bet they'd be good smoked. Let's look it up", and so I did! Long as I'm firin' up the smoker, I s'pose I oughtta put something else in there too. Maybe. I'll report back on results.

    Great idea KWK! I just fired up the smoker for a long pork butt smoke. Got some yellow sweet taters that'll go in tomorrow when I'm finishing the smoke. Thanks for the inspiration!

    WOW!! So, yesterday, I finally got round to doing my smoked yams experiment. I rubbed the skins all over with bacon grease, smoked 'em at 250 for about 3 hours with cherry and mesquite wood chips/chunks, then upped the temp to 350 for half an hour cause they weren't caramelising like I wanted and also wanted to up the smoke for a bit, and then let them rest about half an hour with just the residual heat.

    OH MY GAWDS! I very highly recommend doing this. They were amazing with just a little butter, salt, and pepper. And for goodness sake, don't discard the skins like so many seem to advocate!
    Next I think I'm gonna try beets.
