    Cooking on the Traeger!

    This grill came home with us from the ISE show in SLC.
    Ike has gotten to use it a few times and plans to use it from the camper during antelope season.

    What game meat would you cook on this grill? How many of you have used one for game meat? If you don't use a Traeger, what do you cook on your gas/charcoal grill?

    I love pellet grills! I went with the Green Mountain Grill because it has a digital temp controller and digital temp readout. It is adjustable in 5░ increments. You can also cook at lower temperatures than most pellet grills, as low as 150░F for smoking salmon.

    That's a pretty cool portable looking one.

    Me too Jim,

    I know the owners and they are great folks.
    They just about have me convinced to enter my first competition using their grill.
    Treagers are awesome products as well, I just happened to eat pulled pork off the GM first!!!!!
    I use it as my smoker now by adding a cold smoker chamber.

    The competition I was talking about is a small one here on the OR coast.
    I believe Tri tip, Brisket, Ribs, & pork butt are the meats.
    I know the folks at Green Mountain have a booth in Reno at a big competition as well.

    My best meat so far has been pork ribs "slow and low".
    Did a pretty awesome turkey last month.
    Those small units are awesome for hunting and camping.
    I don't use gas or charcoal anymore since I attached a cold smoker to the GM.

    My best is baby back ribs. They are ridiculous. We can't even eat ribs out anymore cause we're spoiled. We are making them this weekend at my daughters request for her birthday.

    Another favorite is BBQ chicken thighs. Very easy recipe. We used to do it on charcoal, but it is so much easier to maintain the temp on the pellet grill.

    Also my wife's "Unbelievable Chicken". It is a breast meat recipe.

    Also my wife does a herb whole chicken that is soooo good too. I'm getting hungry just thinking about this.

    The list goes on and on.

    Traded a case of beer for my gas BBQ! I mostly cook whatever I am successful at putting a tag on which has been deer and antelope the last few years and I steer we fed out last year! I really prefer a good hard wood for things like tri tip over the gas though!
