    • 1  Tube Pork Sausage (12 oz.)

    For the Biscuits: In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or two knives until the mixture resembles bread crumbs.

    • 2 Cup all-purpose flour

    • 1 Tablespoon baking powder

    • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt

    • 1/2 Cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cold, cubed

  • 4

    Pour in the milk and stir until a soft dough forms. Use additional milk as necessary, ensuring you don't over-mix the dough. Tip the dough onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead with floured hands until it comes together. Pat into a disk about 1/2-inch-thick. Flour a round cookie or biscuit cutter and cut into biscuits. Transfer to an ungreased baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

    • 3/4 Cup milk, or more as needed

  • 5

    Remove the sausage from the grill. Increase the Traeger temperature to 450℉, and preheat with the lid closed for 15 minutes.

    450 ˚F / 232 ˚C

    Place the baking sheet with the biscuits directly on the grill grates. Close the lid and bake the biscuits until they are golden browned and have risen, 10-12 minutes.

    In a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat on the stovetop, add the sausage and cook until well browned and cooked through, 7 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the sausage to a bowl, leaving the rendered fat in the skillet.

  • 8

    Whisk the flour into the fat and cook, stirring, for about 1 minute. While whisking, pour the milk into the skillet and bring the gravy to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer gently for 2 minutes. Stir in the sausage and season with black pepper.

    • 2 Tablespoon all-purpose flour

    • 2 Cup milk

    • To Taste Freshly ground pepper
