BBQ Sweet Potato Wedges with Honey Mustard

BBQ2Addictive.  That’s all I really have to say on this one.


3 ½ – 4 lbs. Sweet Potatoes, cleaned & dried

4 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Melted Virgin Coconut Oil

4 Tbsp Sweet & Smokey BBQ Rub, Recipe Below OR Your Favorite BBQ Dry Rub

Honey Mustard (Easy Recipe Follows) or other dipping sauce of choice


Prep grill or preheat oven to 425°F.

Slice Potatoes into wedges and place in a large mixing bowl.  For thinner potatoes, divide in half and slice halves into thirds lengthwise.  For larger potatoes, slice the potato in half then slice each half into quarters lengthwise.  If potatoes are really long, you may also wish to divide them in half along their circumference.

In a pint jar on the side, combine spices and shake to mix evenly.

Pour olive oil, 4 Tbsp of your spice blend, or to desired taste over potatoes and toss to evenly coat.

Spread across a large lined sheet pan.  For best results, try to make sure potatoes are not overlapping.  Where possible, I like to make sure the wedges are resting skin-side down.

Roast 30-40 minutes in over (less time may be needed if cooking on a grill) or until potatoes brown and tenderize (They may even start to look a little charred on the ridges.  That’s okay.  In fact, it’s perfect!).  You should be able to easily slice through the wedges with a blunted edge, such as that of a spatula or the back of a butter-knife.

When fully cooked, remove from the oven and allow to cool approximately 5 minutes before serving.
