  1. Preheat an outdoor barbecue for medium-high heat and lightly oil the cooking grate.
  2. Divide the sweet potato cubes in half and place each half in the centre of a rectangle of foil. Top each portion with about half of the butter. Sprinkle about half of the dark brown soft sugar, cumin and cayenne pepper over each portion. Season with salt and pepper. Fold the corners of the foil together and seal to form a pouch around each portion.
