    If your into outdoor arrangement, letting them cook or bake under camp fire wood for more than an hour and a half with constant heat generated brings out a tasty flavor too.

    Based on information handed to me from our ancestors, they say smaller sweet potates carry the best flavor than the larger ones. I tried it and so far it is like our ancestor say overall. Then perhaps the brown sugar and butter would not be needed in this case.

    That sounds awesome!!! I love sweet potatoes....I don't think they can be cooked "wrong"....but that sounds like a great twist.

    I will try it.
