Sweet potatoes over wood fire

Discussion in 'Pork' started by workoutchamp, Jul 16, 2010.

  1. sweet potatoes

    sliced on the mandolin

    yellow or lemon or zucchini squash chunked up

    put in ziplock with EVOO and spices - shake

    put in cast iron pan - ON TOP of cast iron griddle

    over hickory. yumm-o.

  2. You are speaking my language right there.  I would to have had to have thrown a little pork loin on next to the skillet.  Sweet potatoes and pork are one of those marriages made in heaven.  Nice job.

    Looks and sounds great!  Question -- why the griddle under the pan? (I don't know that much about cast iron....yet!)

    Now I do like that sweet potatoe and onions then if you add some pork or pork fat even you could have a new meal called the big:

  5. John,

    If you don't put the griddle under that hot of a fire, you risk warping the pan.  That fire will warp the tar out of that griddle - also starts flaking off layers.

    Put the pan on the griddle - plenty hot and nothing burns.  Just my experience.

    and yes, that's a chargriller - which I 'tolerate', but it comes in darn handy for quick jobs like this.
