    Smaller Traeger (Tailgater) Bronson 20 and Using Double Stacked Racks?

    We have the smaller Traeger Tailgater Bronson 20. Interior dimensions are: about 20L x 15 Deep x 7 high in center and only 4 inch high near front and back. We want to use it to grill as many racks of ribs that will fit but still properly cook. Using the vertical grill racks are not ideal as...

    Another ‘my smoker died question’

    Hey there, Brand new here. Just read through all of the threads about smokers dying and people like me desperately hoping they could still eat tonight. Found some very useful info that included ‘ all surface bacteria dies after 30-60 or less @ 225 ‘ . I’m close here so looking for a little...

    Ribeye and NY Strip on the Traeger

    We got our steer back last week from the butcher so we have been eating beef like crazy! Decided to grill up some ribeye and NY strip tonight. Used a steak rub from R Butts R Smokin for the first time and it didn’t disappoint. I only grill a total of about 14 minutes around 400. Hard to beat!

Pretty simple; throw them on at 350 until 180 internal temp, about 40 minutes. Wife made up some Mac and cheese and green beans to go...

    Brisket Finished FAR to Early - Question

    Hi All - New to the forum. I'm not sure if this is the place for this, but I had a few questions around smoking a brisket on a pellet grill. I completed my first attempt a little while back, and while the brisket wasn't bad, it finished far earlier than expected. First thing - equipment. I have...

    Smoked on the Traeger for 8 hours at 225; bumped up to 250 for the last hour. Injected with apple juice, Mad Hunky rub, a good layer of Kosher salt, and coarse ground pepper.

    Weekend Chicken & Ribs

    I decided to try two new recipes for my chicken and ribs cook. For the chicken, I used Big Mo Cason's rub and then created two new sauces from scratch. For the chicken, I used an apricot sauce and for the ribs, I used a sauce with Gulden's mustard. I used a homemade rub on the ribs and cooked...

    Internal Temperature for Chicken - thoughs?

    TARGET INTERNAL TEMPERATURE FOR CHICKEN* This one took a while for me to adjust to, but now, it's like I've been blind and now can see. We've been taught to cook chicken to 165F, right? This blanket, highly generalized recommendation is so deceitful. Yes, your chicken will be safe to eat. But...
