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.
Our daughter is home for the weekend and I am fixing our
family dinner tomorrow. For tonight I fixed a Lipton onion soup meatloaf and
potatoes; I used beefy for the meatloaf and original for the potatoes. The
potato recipe is on the back of the onion soup box and you can get both recipes
on Lipton’s site. For the lack of any other veggie I did peas in country gravy.
I am having ham tomorrow and the meatloaf for anyone who doesn’t want ham.
I did the meatloaf on my Traeger pellet grill, It was in a
little over 1 ½ hours at 300 deg. It was done a little early but held nice in
the microwave. I did the potatoes in my oven at 380 deg. convection and was done
in 35 minutes. I made the gravy stovetop
and added a bag of frozen peas. We had toasted English muffins with the meal.
Tasted good, I have other meatloaf recipes I like better
than the Lipton’s but the wife and daughter loved it and had seconds. I liked
the potatoes, thanks LTBBQ member, Art for telling me to look on the back of
Hope all are having some good food and a fun and safe weekend
with family! I wish the same for all who are not celebrating Thanksgiving.
