BBQ Rubbed Sweet Potatoes Recipe

Big Jim and I had many chats way back and swapped many recipes. I particularly liked these with Roast Pork, but always missed out the Poultry Spice. It's expensive enough here in Scotland to buy sweet potatoes, but Poultry Spice - never available. I have since found a recipe for PS and I'll post it on the Scottish Board for those who also have difficulty finding it.

BBQ Rubbed Sweet Potatoes (Big Jim's (Forbamarebs recipe from 2008)

2 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons BBQ spice
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon poultry spice
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
4 medium sweet potatoes
4 tablespoons salted butter
4 tablespoons light brown sugar

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

In a medium bowl, mix together the paprika, chili powder, BBQ spice, garlic powder, cumin, poultry spice, salt, oregano, and onion powder.

Wash each sweet potato thoroughly under cold running water. Carefully pierce each potato, 4 to 5 times, with the tip of a small knife or the tines of a fork. With the sweet potatoes still wet, dredge each potato into the spice rub and place on the prepared baking sheet.

Bake the sweet potatoes for about 1 hour 20 minutes, or until they are very tender when pierced with a fork. To serve, split each potato open, lengthwise, and dollop each with 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of brown sugar.
