    Yams in the Fire: a great presentation food that will amaze guests

    This is one of my wife's favorites. No butter or sugar needed. The Yam can be scooped out of the burnt shell and will be smooth and sweet.

    Start a bed of coals, place in large evenly shaped Yam (1 lb) and build coals around to 1/2 the Yam.

    Cook about 20 minutes and check to make sure the bottom and sides look like charcoal. Turn to the other side. It will not take as long.

    If you hurry to the table where your guests sit the Yam may still be glowing!

    Cut on a separate plate with a sharp serrated knife

    1/2 Yam per person. When making more than one select Yams that are all about the same size.

    Enjoy the guests looks!

        Ernest I am barred from further grill purchases!!! I have a Weber Kettle with Smokenator (LOVE), a Rec-Tec (LOVE), an ancient Weber gas we inherited with the house (great for when I'm lazy), and a Weber Smoky Mountain (Hate....currently rotting in the basement). Our deck looks ridiculous...or beautiful, depending on what type person you are! Another grill turning up in the driveway might mean grounds for divorce from my ever-patient husband..

        You hate your WSM, why?? Let's talk
        SnS will fit in a paper bag, he won't notice. More versatile than the Smokenator.

        yeah, me and WSM don't get along. We inherited it with the house when we bought, and maybe it was damaged, but it leaks smoke/heat like a sieve, I find it so tough to regulate the temperature. Its also a nightmare to clean after messy or smelly cooks and is prone to molding (at least where we live) so it requires a lot of cleaning. I gave up on it a few years ago. Maybe I should try it again? And investigate the SNS if I can sneak it in...
