My wife cuts sweet potatoes into cubes and tosses them in olive oil and spice and roasts them in the oven for around 20 minutes flipping halfway through. I am think about trying this on the Kamado using a pan that fits perfect. I am assuming I should go indirect so the pan doesn’t get to hot and burn the bottom. Is that correct?
Tonights Dinner- having another couple over- going healthy as I need to lose weight and he is on the heart transplant list. So, low sodium, substituted much of the butter with avacado oil, etc. Anyway, chicken breast, salmon, salad and my 'what is it' dish of sweet potatoes, carrots, mango, korean cinnamon and brown and turbanado sugar- all cooked on the Big Joe. Sorry, we were half-way through dinner when I remembered to take the final pics.
Next time I make promises of pulled pork I will be checking the weather forecast. Flashback to last Tuesday... Wife: "Can we have pulled pork sandwiches this weekend" BigSmoke: "Does a one legged duck swim in circles?" It was a long miserable rainy night. Thankfully I had a pop up tent to keep my setup relatively dry, however, it was the wind that really made it tough to moderate temperatures. I picked up a 10.4 lb butt on Friday and had it trimmed, injected, rubbed with Dizzy Dust (Mustard to help bind), cling wrapped and in the fridge to marinate over night. Saturday evening I fired up the KJ at 8pm, after reaching a stable 250 degree dome temp I loaded the butt (10pm). The plan was to have it resting by 1pm for kick off and ready to eat by halftime but I hit a stall that lasted over 3 hrs (Would not budge from 151 degrees), I'm guessing the wind and swings in temp had a part to play. I ended up having to raise the temp to 350 degrees for the final hour and I pulled the butt just after 2pm. The IT was reading 198 degrees and it was probing tender. I let it rest for 20 mins before FTC for about 1.5 hrs. The cooler was pre-heated with hot water. Despite the hiccups I am quite proud of the final product. It was a huge hit and by far the best pulled pork sandwich I've ever made! I served it with homemade coleslaw, bbq sauce and sweet potatoes. The grilled sweet potatoes were coated with an orange marmalade butter.
