Looking for recipes for Traeger to try out? If you just got a smoker (we have a Traeger), here are some of the best Trager 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, and I could have died and gone to heaven.
They were so delicious.
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 🙂

- Grill pan

Traeger Grill Recipes
Below you will find some of my FAVORITE recipes that are on our website or my brother-in-law’s or my sister-in-law’s site. If you really want the best Traeger recipes, make sure you check out Slow Poke BBQ!
Then I’ll share some from other blogs and directly from the Traeger website. I LOVE the Trager app, because it’s full of tons of delicious recipes. Plus, if you have a WiFi Enabled Traeger, it makes it even easier to set your smoker up.
Smoking a brisket is definitely an art, and there were a few times I wasn’t sure ours would actaully be done when it needed to be…but in the end, it turned out delicious and amazing. In the post above, I share everything you need to know about smoking a brisket. Here is another great recipe with a delicious mop sauce.
This is seriously the best recipe and SO delicious!
If you’ve never had a smokey hamburger…you are really missing out. This is the perfect way to grill and smoke your cheeseburgers to perfection.
Have you ever had hot dog burnt ends? If not, you are MISSING out! This is a really easy recipe to make on your Traeger.
How fun are these chicken lollipops? I can’t wait to try these. Such a fun twist on this traditional meat.
These are so easy and always a huge hit!
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.
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!
Make sure you click through to these sites and pin directly from their site any recipes that stand out to you. These are all from bloggers around the web.
