    Traeger's Recipes

    Anyone else find Traeger's recipes on their app and website to be unreliable? I've used a handful and really have only liked the brisket one I tried. A week or so ago I tried a smoked salmon recipe that was inedible due to oversalting.

    Welcome to The Pit Damion. I don't have a pellet pooper, so I have not tried their recipes.

      Welcome from Maryland. Never tried any of their recipes and I do have a pellet smoker. I would just ask here in The Pit since I’ve seen some outstanding salmon posted here.

          Welcome from WI. Yes I have tried their recipes. Basically the same results. I use a Recteq but pellet grill recipes should be the same no matter what cooker you use. I now stay away from them.

              Welcome aboard from Virginia Beach. Sorry I do not have a pellet grill yet, nor have I tried any of Traeger's recipes.

                IMHO -- recipes are only a guide or suggestion not to be followed blindly. BBQing is an art. Traeger recipes also have reviews, some good and others not so much.

                  I only use their recipes as a guide for time and temp.

                    Sometimes I think Traeger is just throwing out variations of old recipes merely to have something to say to owners/prospective owners. When they don't have anything new to show, they need something to make you remember them.

                    Take them as ideas for your own variation and go from there. Be sure and keep a log on each of your cooks so you can remember what you did right on the good ones.

                        I’ve tried a few of their recipes and had mixed results as well. Also have tried a couple of their sauces and not been impressed. A lot of their recipes seem focused on selling you a rub, sauce or accessory they sell.

                          Agreed. I tried using their wild game rub and 'Que sauce...haven't tried a second time.

                          I love cooking with wine. Sometimes I put it in my food.

                          One cannot have too many grills.

                        Welcome to the pit from the Chicago area. By first using and studying the methods here on AR, you will be able to tell if many recipes elsewhere are a hunk of baloney or not. I have found many recipes in proprietary booklets (even Weber's) to be completely untenable.

                        There's an article here on the free side titled, "The Science of Salt." It is a major help.

                        So you came to the right place. Look forward to seeing some of your future cooks.

                        Welcome to the pit from the bbq capital of New England, Massachusetts. I don't like their recipes due to the salt content. I have a pellet grill and blend my own rub to my taste. You can use recipes from anyone not just from traeger.

                          True...that's what landed me here. We were getting our house appraised and the appraiser was a BBQ fan. Gave us a good appraisal and pointed me to this site!

                          The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                          the good one grill
                          The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                          Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                          Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                          The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                          Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                          The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
