A fantastic traditional fat side up Texas BBQ brisket is really hard to beat!

Derrick Riches’ Pellet Roasted Leg of Lamb

Leg of Lamb is mouthwateringly delicious, yet it is not as popular a meat to smoke as beef or chicken.

This herby, garlicky, lemony lamb smoker recipe is an absolute treat for the senses and the pallet. And it comes from outdoor cooking expert Derrick Riches.

You really must try it out at your next BBQ!

You smoke the lamb leg at 325°F – 20 minutes of cooking time per pound of meat.

You’ll need to pull the lamb off the smoker at internal temperatures of 125°F for medium rare, 135°F for medium, and 150°F for well done.

Char Siu Pork Shoulder on the Pellet Grill

The great flavours of Chinese BBQ Pork are something we all enjoy, and are familiar with. Yet if you want to take it up a level put it in your pellet smoker.

The extra smoke taste will completely transform your backyard BBQ efforts! You may even be the talk of the neighbourhood!

It also takes less time than pulled pork because you are going to slice it, not pull it apart.

Pellet Grilled Venison Steak

Venison is so much lower in fat than other red meats, such as beef. Deer are always on the move, and well-muscled as a result.

That makes for a much shorter smoking time, and a very specific and delicious taste due to the amount of iron and lack of fat in the meat.

This recipe is quick, healthy, easy and buttery. Perfect for the pellet grills.

Traeger Smoked Duck

Duck is a spectacular meat to smoke. There’s so much fat and flavour and unlike chicken it can be served medium rare, allowing for tender moist meat.

This recipe is intended for the Traeger Pellet Grill but you can of course use whichever pellet grill you have. After all, pellet grills largely work the same way.

Top Tips – remove the wing tips and giblets for a better result. For a crispy skin score the fat with a knife.

Pit Boss Apple Bacon Smoked Ham & Glazed Carrots

Since we mentioned Traeger, it would only be fair to mention their main rivals Pit Boss too.

This recipe is also incredibly tasty – sweet, smoky, with flavours of apple, cider and vinegar. Truly delightful.

Have a look at this Pit Boss recipe and you won’t be one bit disappointed.

Hickory Smoked Pellet Grill Turkey

Although many people think of turkey for Thanksgiving or Christmas, it’s a fantastic dish to serve all year round.

When you smoke the turkey low and slow for a few hours with hickory wood, you simply pack it full of delicious smoke flavour. This is a great recipe for a Sunday family gathering or any BBQ backyard event.

Top Tip – make sure you brine the turkey in a salt, sugar and water solution the night before, to make sure it stays moist during the smoke.
