Remove them from the water and let them to cool for about 20 minutes.

Always pre-heat your grill before performing any grilling. Switch on for about 10 minutes with the lid close.
You can spray some anti-stick spray to help you on the grilling process.

A recommended is to slice the sweet potatoes into half or even into wedges when grilling. This can help reduce the grilling time.
Add some olive oil for a healthier flavor too if you want. Enjoy a different snacks for your grilling experience.
