There are not many blogs out there dedicated to cooking on a pellet smoker. I have been cooking, grilling & smoking over 35 yrs now. I recently bought a Traeger Lil Tex Elite pellet smoker & have cooked on it over six yrs. now. I would like to share recipes & info I have gained from cooking on it.
Update 2014: I have plenty of recipes here for the pellet smoker so I am now including other outdoor cooking and some of my indoor cooking too.
I have been having trouble getting photos loaded because of a bug in Google Blogger. They gave me a work around that works until they fix the problem. Hopefully I can get caught up soon.

Tonight for supper I fixed one more dish I look forward to
each summer using fresh produce, wilted lettuce. One other a BLT sandwich with
fresh tomatoes I already had and fresh corn on the cob I will be able to buy in
a week or so.
I had to take the photos in a hurry because once you start
these dishes go together pretty fast.
A good neighbor gave me the lettuce and I had some good
Kah’s bacon, thinly sliced Vidalia onions, and cider vinegar to make the wilted
lettuce. My sandwich was an open face turkey and pork, topped with tomato and
I baked a take home and bake ciabatta loaf I would split and
toast for the sandwich. Top that with 3 slices of honey smoked turkey, from Kah
Meats, some of my smoked pulled pork, a slice of fresh tomato, and pour some
cheese sauce over all. For the sauce I used a can of Rico’s Con Queso white
cheese and added a few shakes of ancho chili powder and a teaspoon of smoked
It all tasted great. My wife and I got our yearly fix of
wilted lettuce with bacon and the sandwich was mighty tasty with it.
