Sweet potatoes are like the cool older brother to regular potatoes. Whether they’re used for sweet potato fries, Thanksgiving sweet potato boats or delicious purees, they’re versatile and flavorful. For this recipe, we decided to cook the sweet potato wedges on a Red Oak grilling plank, which not only protects them from the direct flames, but also infuses a delicious smoky flavor.
