2 strips bacon
1 green bell pepper, chopped

4 cloves garlic
2 sticks butter
1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp. creole seasoning (or salt and pepper)
6 sweet potatoes, halved and peeled

Boil coon in enough water to cover for 1 hour to tenderize. Remove. Dry, and season with creole seasoning or salt and pepper. Rub over the coon. Sink holes, 2 on each side and fill with the garlic cloves. Place chopped vegetables and 1 stick of butter in cavity.
