Prime Time Buttery Beef Rub by PS Seasoning
Maple Bourbon Wing Sauce by PS Seasoning
3-4 Sweet Potatoes
1/2 stick of Butter or 1/4 cup of Tallow
7 Tbsp Brown Sugar
2 cups Ricotta Cheese
1 cup Walnuts, crushed
3-4 Aluminum Foil Sheets
Preheat your smoker or grill to 275 °F.
Using a fork, poke holes into sweet potatoes.
On a sheet of foil, add 1 pat of butter and 1 sweet potato; season with Prime Time Buttery Beef Rub by PS Seasoning. Tightly wrap and repeat for each potato.
Place potatoes on your smoker, or if using a grill, place on indirect heat.
Cook potatoes for 1 hour. Remove and let cool.
Increase your grill or smoker temperature to 350 °F.
Slice sweet potatoes in half long ways. Using a spoon, carve out potatoes about half an inch from the edges.
In a mixing bowl, add sweet potato mixture with 2 Tbsp Maple Bourbon Wing Sauce by PS Seasoning, 1 Tbsp Prime Time Buttery Beef Rub by PS Seasoning, and 4 Tbsp of brown sugar. Combine and add mixture back to the potatoes.
Place over indirect heat on your smoker or grill and cook for an additional 15-20 minutes.
Roast the walnuts: In a small skillet add crushed walnuts, 1 Tbsp butter, 3 Tbsp brown sugar, and 2 Tbsp Maple Bourbon Wing Sauce by PS Seasoning. Cook simultaneously with the halved sweet potatoes.
Prepare the whipped ricotta: In a food processor or blender, add 2 cups ricotta and 1 Tbsp Prime Time Buttery Beef Rub by PS Seasoning. Whip at a pulse for no longer than 15 seconds. If you over whip the ricotta it will become runny.
Remove potatoes, add to serving tray, and top with whipped ricotta. Garnish with roasted walnuts and drizzle with Maple Bourbon Wing Sauce by PS Seasoning.
Pro Tip: Add in roasted garlic with the sweet potato filling for an additional layer of flavor.
