Grill-Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Sweet Sesame and Soy Sauce
Sweet potatoes cooked whole on the grill are simple and delicious—if you can figure out how to cook them through before scorching their exterior.
Why This Recipe Works
For our grill-roasted sweet potatoes recipe, we found it best to lightly oil the sweet potatoes’ skin before grill-roasting them over indirect heat. When cooked alongside ribs or a whole chicken, the sweet potatoes absorb a fair amount of smoke flavor. For best results with our grill-roasted sweet potatoes recipe, stick with medium-sized sweet potatoes. Mammoth sweet potatoes, which weigh a pound each, are too big for single servings and will char before they cook through properly.
