Cooking Instructions

A smoky twist on a Holiday classic, this Grilled Sweet Potato Casserole is easily made entirely on your pellet grill. Hearty sweet potatoes are smothered in butter then smoked until soft, and stuffed with crunchy pecans, brown sugar, cinnamon and mini marshmallows. The gooey marshmallows melt into the sweet potatoes with a slight char on top for a sweet and smoky Thanksgiving or Christmas side.

Note: It is recommended to use Apple Hardwood Pellets with this recipe.

This recipe uses Pit Boss Tennessee Apple Butter Rub seasoning.

  1. Fire up your Pit Boss and preheat to 400° F. If using a gas or charcoal grill, set it for medium-high heat.
  2. Wash and scrub potatoes then pat dry with paper towel.
  3. Coat outside of potatoes generously in softened butter then set butter aside. Place the sweet potatoes directly on the grill grate and smoke until soft, 1 to 1 ½ hours depending on the size of your sweet potatoes.
  4. Once sweet potatoes are soft remove from the grill. Coat with more butter and cover with brown sugar and Tennessee Apple Butter. Slice the center of the sweet potato and press on the sides to create an opening. Stuff each sweet potato with a layer of butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, chopped pecans, and marshmallows.
  5. Return to the grill and cook, covered, for five minutes, or until marshmallows are lightly browned. Remove from grill and serve warm.
