Traeger Smokers are the best. It has changed my life in so many ways. By now you know I love food, that is an understatement, I adore food. It is the reason I wake up in the morning. It is my purpose for all I do. Food has been an important part of my life and I sure enjoy doing new things and learning new things. A couple of years ago I invested in a Traeger Smoker. I have to say it was the best investment ever. I have a smoker, but never used it because it was just to much work. I don't have the time to work the fire and keep it at the perfect temp. I admire those that do and I salute them for the efforts they put out. But I am not one of those dedicated fire watching persons. That is why I love the Traiger. It is effortless in every way and the end result is over the top.
The Traeger Smoker is amazing. It has a built in augar that slowly adds amazing real wood pellets to a burner that keeps it at the perfect temperature for as long as you need it. So in a word or a few words I can put whatever I want in the smoker, set the temperature and go and create anything else I need to do.
Below are a few things that I love to smoke. It is an adventure to be sure and one that you will enjoy. Oh, you will enjoy it more if you have a Traeger Smoker.
One of my favorite things to smoke would be boneless skinless chicken thighs. They are easy and are amazing to eat. I use them in everything from pasta dishes to tacos.
I place the thighs in a bowl and cover them with a marinade.
For the Marinade
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup agave
1/2 cup Canadian Steak Seasoning
Mix well and pour over chicken and let marinade for at least 4 hours. Overnight is great. Place on the Smoker on smoke for 1 hour. Turn up smoker to 280 for 30 minutes. Cook and remove from smoker and enjoy.
