My BBQ/ Smoker
My brother came by on my birthday and brought me
this. I was very skeptical and not very excited. I was
a bit overwhelmed. I bought a regular BBQ gas grill
for my birthday last year. I really would rather cook
outside than in the house.
Forgive me if I sound like a infomercial. This thing is
amazing. It uses pellets which are completely bio-degradable.
Not to mention it smells amazing. I like to grab a cup of coffee,
and sit outside while it heats up and pretend I am camping.
It is like a oven in that you set the temperature and it stays
there. You can BBQ or you can smoke like we did last weekend,
a Tri-tip for a couple of hours. There is no burning at all of the meat.
My husband is not a fan of hot dogs, but somehow I messed up one
weekend and didn't really have anything for dinner and I suggested
hot dogs and he said okay, they turned out to be gourmet. When we
went grocery shopping again, he suggested hot dogs.
We will be cooking on it all weekend. Hot dogs and hamburgers
on Saturday, Ribs on Sunday, Chicken on Monday. My brother
even cooks pizza on his. I am going to try that soon.
It is called a Traeger Pellet Grill. I wish I could talk my husband
into sleeping in a tent outside too. I love camping.
Have a wonderful Saturday!
