    First cooking attempt

    I just got my smoker, a Smoke Vault 18, so I had to try something. After reading dozens of recipes i decided an easy low cost meat would be a chicken. A major frustration I had was in reading all the recipes was there seems to not be a way to specify the smoke attributes used in the recipe...

    Orange Glazed Chicken Breasts

    I have mentioned before that She Who Must Be Obeyed likes boneless skinless chicken breasts while I find them a difficult piece of meat to keep moist and tender. Well, orders were given so I went to work. One of the things you can do to keep the breast moist is to brine it. However, I don’t...

    Easy Bourbon Chicken Breasts

    One of the best things about pellet smokers is that it can be used to make easy, moist, boneless skinless chicken breasts. The circulating air allows for a great crust and cooking at high temperatures makes a cut of chicken that can be dry and rubbery moist with a great coating. I am busy...

    Crispy Garlic Parmesan Wings

    I have seen a lot of recipes that call for tossing chicken in baking powder to get a very crispy skin. I decided it was time to give it a try. Spoiler alert, it works. I started with 600 grams (1 1/2 pounds) chicken wing segments. I patted them dry with a paper towel. I put 15 ml (1 tbsp)...

    First, I am so sorry for not being active. I have been distracted by family issues. However, I have missed you all. A friend took a trip to Nashville some time ago and told me about Nashville chicken. It is a fried chicken that is brushed with hot oil that has cayenne bloomed in it. The...

    Sriracha Chicken

    Rubbed down with a Sriracha Compound Butter and covered with Sriracha Powder and Italian Dressing Mix. Smoked at 250 for 2 hours then 325 for 1 hour and 20 min. i forgot to put the beans in until the last hour, but they were fine. I’m becoming a big fan of the Sriracha Powder.

    Korean Chicken

    I love Korean barbecue. I had a chicken and I wanted to fire it in the Traeger Timberline and decided to marinate it with Korean flavours. I will point out that this is not an authentic Korean recipe. I just used flavours common to that culture. Start by mixing up the marinade: 150 ml (2/3...

    Blackened Chicken Breast

    She Who Must Be Obeyed likes boneless skinless chicken breasts. They are not my favourite cut of chicken as I have pointed out before. I work to give them more taste and a nice texture. One of my favourite ways is to “blacken” them. That involves putting a spice coating on the chicken and...
