Once you’ve got your new grill all setup and ready to go, there’s still one missing element and that’s a few great pellet grill recipes. You really don’t need a cookbook with hundreds of recipes, you’re better off just finding a curated selection of the very best ones – and guess what – you just did!
We’ve curated and tweaked some of the greatest, most popular, and time-tested recipes to cook using a pellet grill, and found a selection that anyone can enjoy. From proteins and main courses to more unique dishes like breads, stuffed cabbage, even mac n cheese, you can do just about anything in a smoker. There are even people who smoke water, then freeze it to make smoky tasting ice cubes for their bourbon.
Whether you’re in the mood for a perfect brisket, or something a little lighter like chipotle turkey burgers, or even just some smoked sweet potatoes for later, if you already own a smoker this is a great resource to plan out your dinner menu. If you haven’t taken the plunge and picked one out yet, these delicious and tempting recipes will basically seal the deal for you.
You can even do dessert in your smoker. Seriously. They’re a lot more versatile than people give them credit for. Some of these recipes are classic takes on traditional meals, and other ones turn the whole thing on its head.
A wood pellet grill / smoker is a super versatile option because you can get the best of both worlds. A pellet grill preheats really quickly, reduces flare-ups, cook things evenly, and you can really get the exact flavor you want for each recipe thanks to the different types of pellets. It really is a revolution, and they’re getting more and more popular each season. As more time passes, we’re confident more and more cool recipes will come out, including different mixtures of pellets to achieve perfect smoky flavors.
Granted, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows, there are a few cons as well. For instance, you’ll need electricity for it so it’s not ideal for camping unless you have a generator.
Despite having grill in the name, they’re not really ideal for actually “grilling” food if you’re looking for those signature grill marks. The higher the temperature you’re cooking at, the less smoky you’ll get, so to get a really smoky flavor you’ll need to set aside more time.
Now, none of these cons are really the end of the world or a reason to avoid cooking up some amazing pellet grill recipes, but they’re worth mentioning for the uninitiated none the less.
When you’re able to import extra flavor into your food through the smoking process, you can use less salt, sugar, fats, etc… making for a healthier, and tastier, meal.
Anyways, with the basics out of the way, let’s get right into some top-tier recipes that you can make at home in your pellet grill. From perfect proteins, decadent dessert, and everything in between – let’s get smoking.
