4 servings

  • 4 sweet potatoes
  • ½ cup butter
  • 3 tbsp. maple syrup
  • Salt to taste
  • Tony Roma's BBQ St. Louis Ribs

  • Fire up your grill. Place the potatoes onto your grill and close lid. Grill/bake sweet potatoes for 45 to 60 minutes or until they are tender when pierced with a knife. While the potatoes are baking, prepare the butter. Combine the butter and maple syrup into a small sauce pot and heat until the butter is melted. Season to taste with a little salt. Stir and set aside, keeping warm. When the potatoes are baked and tender, suck up the warm butter maple syrup mixture with your injection syringe. Plunge the needle into the center of the hot potato and press the plunger on the syringe, injecting the warm butter mixture into the center. Repeat with remaining potatoes. Cut open each potato and watch the hot buttery steam rise from the hot flesh.
