Info
This side from Weber's New Real Grilling proved to be the surprise hit of this meal and a good pairing with the TEXAS BURGERS I was making this day. They were simple to make and I was actually a bit worried that the recipe didn't call for par-boiling the sweet potatoes. Two one pound sweet potatoes were cut into 1/2" x 1/2" pieces and were tossed in vegetable oil and then some spices. These were cooked on the grill in a wire basket. Just that simple, but people loved these. The initial bite was VERY spicy and I worried I used too much chili powder. Surprisingly, the second bite was more tame and the fries turned out t be perfectly spiced. People were eating these like they were potato chips, after their initial serving was done folks were grabbing more fries two or thee at a time
