Top Traeger Recipes For Smoking in 2023
1 Easy Traeger Smoked Salmon with Dill and Lemon Compound Butter
This great smoked salmon recipe is for salmon fillet, rather than a whole salmon which would take much longer.
It’s easy and quick but still super smoky and tasty. The compound butter takes those delicious smoked fish flavours to a whole new level.

2 Traeger Smoked Longhorn Cowboy Tri Tip
This great recipe from Traeger themselves uses Traeger Beef Rub and coffee grounds to create a delicious bark and seal moisture inside the ever popular tri tip steak cut.
This recipe will serve around 6 very fortunate people, and could become your favourite go-to pellet grill steak recipe.
All in all, it will take around 4 hours on your Traeger smoker to bring this tasty steak to your preferred level of doneness.
3 Smoked Cream Cheese
This is an interesting one you may not have thought of before.
It involves treating a cream cheese block like a piece of meat – you cover it in BBQ rub and smoke it in your Traeger grill.
This forms a crust on the outside of the block while sealing in moisture on the inside keeping the cheese from melting. This is great for a smoking side dish or appetiser, and it goes really well with smoked salmon or spread on breads or crackers.
4 Korean BBQ Chicken Wings
The great combination of sweet, spicy and salty is really well balanced in this Korean BBQ Traeger recipe.
In fact there are so many different flavours going on in this dish that your tastebuds might have trouble keeping up!
This is a fast but flavoursome smoke over cherry wood and a great way to enjoy a classic smoker recipe for chicken wings.
5 Traeger Whole Chicken Recipe
It’s always a winner to make a smoked chicken dinner, but this recipe will take things to the next level.
Hit your whole chicken up with a delicious rub and smoke it for about 2 hours and you are good to go.
6 Traeger Smoked Cocktail – Strawberry Mule
If you’ve never thought about making smoked cocktails using your Traeger grill then this idea might interest and intrigue you.
The strawberries used in this Strawberry Mule Cocktail are smoked in your Traeger smoker over pecan wood first.
Then all you’ll need is lemon juice, vodka, ginger beer and crushed ice.
For an extra dimension of smoke you can also use Traeger’s very own smoked simple syrup, but you’ll still get a really smoky taste from the smoked fruit if you don’t.
7 Smoked Mussels
If you’re looking for a seafood smoker recipe then this one comes highly recommended.
It comes with a tasty butter sauce made from garlic, butter, cider and paprika.
The mussels are smoked for 15 minutes in the Traeger and served with a delicious salsa verde and crusty bread.
8 Smoked Lobster Tails
Lobster is the king of seafood dishes, sometimes even called the steak of seafood.
It’s also a winner of a dish to make in your Traeger grill.
This great recipe from ‘Stay Snatched,’ takes you through step by step how to smoke lobster tails.
Deliciously served with a garlic and herb butter sauce.
9 Traeger Smoked Prime Rib
This great Traeger recipe is one for special occasions, but also makes the occasion special in and of itself.

Prime rib is such a great cut of meat to smoke at any time of the year, as well as holidays.
10 Reverse Seared Traeger Tomahawk Steak
Let’s go out with a bang, shall we?
The Tomahawk steak is a showstopping cut of meat that resembles the Tomahawk axe because the bone is left in.
It’s really stunning as a centrepiece for any BBQ occasion and your Traeger grill makes it so easy to smoke your meat slow and low at a consistent temperature.
