Traeger's Top 10 Recipes of 2019


Our 10 Most Popular Recipes of 2019

We shared a lot of wood-fired recipes in 2019, and although they were all great (well, at least we think so), these are the 10 that Traeger Nation really couldn’t get enough of. It was no surprise seeing standbys such as smoked brisket, spicy wings, and grilled steak on the list. However, you also devoured a few recipes we didn’t see coming – smoked deviled eggs and wild game tacos come to mind – proving that you weren’t afraid of new challenges or unfamiliar flavors. To help you revisit this year’s most popular picks, we gathered our 2019 MVPs here for you to savor all over again.

1. Brown Sugar & Bacon-Wrapped Smokies

With their all-star trio of flavors – sweet, salty, and smoky – it’s no wonder these pork poppers ended up in the top 10.


2. French Dip Sandwich

Slow-roasted beef piled on crusty bread and dipped in savory au jus. We think sandwiches don’t get much better than this and you agreed.


3. Loaded Grilled Chicken Tacos

Forget Taco Tuesday, y’all wanted these towering tacos from Dennis The Prescott every night of the week.


4. Twice Baked Potatoes

Whether you were serving ‘em up as a side or making them into a meal, these cheesy, smoky spuds were a hit.


5. Smoked Brisket

You don’t need to be pro pitmaster to make melt-in-your-mouth brisket when you have a Traeger, which is probably why this recipe was so popular.


6. Hellfire Chicken Wings

We threw down the gauntlet with these tongue-numbing, sweat-inducing wings, and Traeger Nation was more than up for the challenge.


7. Braised Backstrap Shredded Tacos

The fact that you can’t find the meat for these tacos in a grocery store didn’t stop you from trying your hand at these wild game wonders from John Dudley.


8. Smoked Deviled Eggs

Easy to make and even easier to enjoy, it makes sense that these smoky starters were a massive hit this year.


9. Grilled Peppercorn Steaks with Mushroom Cream Sauce

We’re not shocked that a recipe that lets you have a steakhouse-caliber eating experience at home was beloved by Traeger Nation.


10. BBQ Brisket Grilled Cheese

This one’s pretty self-explanatory. A grilled cheese sandwich stuffed with smoked brisket. Of course it caught on like wildfire.
