I am not going to assign stars for my making of this point, anyway. While I am not wild about the dish, it is entirely possible that my relative incompetence with real grilling (i.e., outside on a barbecue grill) has contributed to my assessment. The sauce is really flavorful but garlic over-dominates (for me--emphasis, for me! It is entirely a matter of personal taste!). The sweet potatoes didn't carmelize to the extent I like. Nevertheless, it made a tasty meal with a salad. I'm glad I tried it.
