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.
Yesterday I had my Ghee on cooking and was getting
ingredients ready to make the mustard and didn’t realize I was supposed to let
the beer, mustard seeds, and dry mustard mix set for four hours. It was getting too late so I just let it set for
I found the recipe for brat bites and beer, horseradish
mustard at Epicurious by Bruce Aidell. He makes some good sausage and brats
found in groceries. There was a recipe for the brat bites too but I will just
use some of my butcher’s brats when I get ready to make them. I wanted to make
the mustard to try first.
I didn’t have brown mustard seeds so used yellow. I used my new Ninja food processor to puree
the beer and mustard seed mix. I did it until it looked like I still had some
seeds left whole. I thought a third cup of horseradish was too much so I used
two heaping tablespoons. I thought the mustard cooked well and liked how the
cornstarch thickened it at the end.
I had some leftover ham and a brat bun to try the mustard on
for my supper. I toasted the brat bun, warmed the ham in the skillet, added
some med. cheddar goat cheese and melted under the broiler.
I thought the mustard was one of the best I have
made and will try it again. Next time may throw in another Tbs. of horseradish.
