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 BBQ spice
1 teaspoon garlic powder
teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon poultry spice
1 teaspoon salt
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
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.
