While ribs are braising in oven, cut 3 to 4 large unpeeled sweet potatoes into 8 wedges, lengthwise. Place potato wedges and 3 tbsp (45 mL) peanut oil in a large mixing bowl; turn potatoes until coated with oil. Place skin-side down on a rack on top of a baking tray placed low in 375°F (190°C) oven with ribs for 30 minutes. Remove from oven; let stand while ribs finish braising. (Potatoes can be covered and refrigerated for up to 2 days.) When ready to proceed, place oven rack on highest position. Turn wedges on side, still on rack, and bake 15 minutes in 425°F (220°C) oven (about 10minutes longer for chilled potatoes). Turn potatoes to other side. Bake 15 minutes or until richly browned in spots. Sprinkle with pinches of smoked salt; serve right away
