3 Grilled Chicken Wings
These grilled chicken are are quick to cook on your Traeger and they also come with great ideas for sauces – Creamy Buffalo Sauce, Garlic Parmesan Sauce & Honey BBQ Sauce.
They are perfect for appetisers, side dishes or as a main dish with fries etc. The Honey BBQ sauce is a particular favourite of ours.
4 Pork Tenderloin with Honey Garlic Mustard Sauce
Pork tenderloin is a bit of an underrated cut of meat yet it is delicious, inexpensive and quick to grill.
Much like a steak it’s best served medium rare for a succulent, tender bite that is unlike any other pork cut.
It pairs incredibly well with honey mustard garlic sauce.
5 Smoky Sweet Bourbon BBQ Chicken Kebabs (Kabobs)
This is one of our favourite grilling skewer recipes to date.
It comes from the Traeger website and requires marinading the chicken overnight. That being said it only requires about 10 minutes on hot grills to cook.
The sweet and smoky flavours are absolutely delicious and the bourbon adds a great extra kick.
6 Traeger Grilled Lamb Chops
These grilled lamb chops will only take you 3-4 minutes a side on your trusty Traeger grill.
They also come with a classic and flavoursome mint sauce making them absolutely perfect for a midweek quick treat.
You really couldn’t be disappointed with this great grilling recipe! Your family and friends will love you for it.
7 Grilled New York Strip Steak
This simple recipe from ‘A Grill for All Seasons’ for grilling a New York Strip Steak on your Traeger grill is very helpful and informative.
It explains in detail how to go about grilling a steak on your favourite pellet grill and the times and temperatures that are required.
It can easily be applied to whatever cut of steak you want to grill.
8 Wood-fired Pizza Recipe
A lot of people don’t think of making pellet grill pizza but there’s absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t.
Your Traeger grill can up to 500F (260C) which allows you to cook a delicious pizza in about 12 minutes or so.
Plus you are going to get that unmistakable and sought after wood-fired pizza taste.
A pizza stone could be helpful here if you want to cook pizza this way regularly, but it isn’t strictly necessary.
9 Traeger Smash Burgers
This simple but highly effective Traeger grilling recipe requires a cast iron griddle but not too much in terms of ingredients.
You simply preheat the griddle in your Traeger and then smash your burger on it on top of a bed of onions. It’s a quick cook – around 15 minutes altogether at 450F or 232C over hickory wood.
10 Chicago Style Hot Dogs
Taking only 15 minutes on the Traeger grills these Chicago Style Hot Dogs are so easy to prepare. They are sprinkled with onions, peppers and tomatoes, topped with mustard and just knockout delicious.
This is hands down one of our favourite Traeger grilling recipes of all time!
