Looking for Traeger Recipes to try out? If you just got a smoker (we have a Traeger), here are some of the best Traeger recipes out there (though you can definitely use them on any brand!)
Smoking on a Traeger
Earlier this summer, we got a Traeger Timberline 850.
Although there has been a bit of a learning curve, we have come to really appreciate the taste of food that has been slow smoked for hours.
It’s amazing what you can make with a smoker, too! Of course, there are meats like pork and brisket – but that’s only tipping the scale of what you can do with it.
We had smoked nachos for my birthday for the first time at home and I could have died and gone to heaven.
They were so delicious. I bet there are no people who do not like smoky flavors even once. That is why grills are so cohesive at our parties. Especially, the Traeger grills. What can’t you smoke on it? From Traeger smoked turkey, beef, and chicken breasts to chicken wings. All tastes fabulous when smoked on the grill. Additionally, these potential easy recipes do not take a long time to be prepared. The best thing is it does not require a good cook. Some home cooks in a house party can easily take charge to make delicious food at home. And so we share with you some fabulous recipes to start with.
Because I’m sure a lot of people are going to be getting Traegers for Christmas, I thought I would share some different Traeger recipes that you can use.
Can you use these on a different smoker? Of course! However, because I have a Traeger, and I know I have found myself searching, “Traeger Recipes” on Google, I thought it was worth doing a post specifically on that 🙂
Be sure to join our NEW Smoking group on Facebook! All smokers welcome 🙂

How to Smoke a Brisket: The Ultimate Guide

How fun are these chicken lollipops? I can’t wait to try these. Such a fun twist on this traditional meat. For best results use our simple recipe above.

Yum…we love carne asada! We have shared our Slow Cooker Carne Asada in the past, but I don’t think anything beats carne asade on the grill/smoker. If you are an extreme smoker lover, charcoal smokers will be the best for this.
Need I say more? Our family LOVES beef jerky, but it can get pricey. This version sounds absolutely delectable. Oliver is an especially big fan of beef jerky, so I can’t wait to try these.
And now are recipes from other bloggers across the web – as well as recipes straight from the Traeger website. They have seriously such a HUGE variety in their collection, it was hard to just pick a couple of the most delicious to feature. I was really excited about their breakfast and dessert section. I’m already trying to decide which dessert I want to try first on our Traeger – I think pound cake is a pretty big contender!
