You’re probably thinking to yourself “smoked sweet potatoes, really”?? But, let me tell you….these are amazing!!! Seriously, incredibly simple to prep, the smoker does all the work, you can top them as desired, and the flavor is much more enhanced through the wood chips compared to cooking them via oven, stove, or even grill!!! If you have access to a smoker, I highly recommend trying this!!
My hubby was smoking a pork shoulder a few weeks back and I mentioned how I was in the mood for sweet potatoes as a side dish. He threw out the idea of trying to put them on the smoker and although I was a bit hesitant, I went ahead with it. Turns out, my hubby did a great job and his idea was definitely a new favorite of mine! With summer coming up, I see a lot of grill/smoker usage coming up and this will surely be made again….and again….and again, haha!!
