Baked Sweet Potatoes on the Big Green Egg

What you’ll need

  • 4 sweet potatoes (double the recipe if needed)
  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 tbsp buckwheat honey
  • 1 oz spiced rum
  • 1 tbsp orange juice
  • Kosher salt to add to taste

Make it

  • Set the Big Green Egg for indirect cooking at 500°F
  • Set the sweet potatoes on the Egg grill and close the come. Give the potatoes 40-60 minutes to bake. Potatoes should be tender when pierced with a knife or fork.
  • While the potatoes bake, place the butter, honey, rum and orange juice in a saucepan. Heat until the butter melts, then season to taste with kosher salt. Keep warm.
  • Remove the potatoes from the Egg. Take an injection syringe, fill it with the butter, honey, and rum mixture and inject directly into the center of each potato.
  • Cut each potato open and enjoy!
