These quick and easy grilled sweet potatoes in foil make an excellent side dish for all your favorite barbeque entrees! They are healthy, flavorful and so easy to customize to every individual's tastes.
Cut 4 sheets of aluminum foil. Place each potato on a piece of foil and brush with oil and top with sea salt (optional). Wrap and repeat.
Using tongs, place potatos on the shelf of the grill or away from direct heat evenly spaced so they are not touching. Close the lid and grill 30 minutes. Rotate with tongs and grill an additional 30 minutes.
Using tongs, remove from heat and remove aluminum foil. Use a thermometer to ensure they are done. Internal temperature should reach around 210°F.
Sprinkle brown sugar over fresh grilled sweet potato.
Prep in advance! Just season and wrap your sweet potatoes in foil. Keep them in your fridge (or cooler for camping) for up to four days.
If you choose larger sweet potatoes, you'll need to adjust your grill time to accommodate.
Choosing a longer, skinnier sweet potato means it will cook faster!
Poke each potato with a fork to release heat and steam as they bake on the grill.
