Marinated Chicken, & sweet potatoes

My first post I am trying to get the hang of this. I cooked cut up chicken marinated in Stubs Chicken Marinade for two hrs. Started the smoker & put chicken directly on the grill for 1/2 hr at 225 deg. Meanwhile I cut two sweet potatoes in half w/butter & brown sugar in the middle, then wrapped in foil & added to the grill. After 1/2 hr upped the temp to 250 deg. After one hr. 15 min the chicken was up to 180 deg for legs & thighs & about 170 for breasts. Turned the smoker down to smoke setting 180 deg to hold while I fixed some grilled lettuce on my Weber Q100. Cut lettuce in half, sprinkled w/olive oil, salt & pepper & placed on the grill a few minutes, until I had nice grill marks. Served the lettuce w/balsamic vinegar.
