When ready to cook, start the Traeger on smoke for 4-5 minutes to establish the fire. Turn the heat up to 350 degrees F and allow the grill to preheat with the lid closed for 10-15 minutes.
In a mixing bowl, combine buttermilk, egg, and vanilla. Whisk thoroughly. Whisk in the melted butter.
In another large mixing bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk to mix.
Make a well in the center of the dry mixture, and pour in the wet ingredients.
Whisk until the batter is relatively smooth. Do not over-mix or the pancakes will toughen. Stir in the bananas and crumbled bacon.
Lightly spray the griddle with nonstick cooking spray. Place griddle on the grill and allow to heat up (about 4-5 minutes). Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto griddle.
Cook the first side until you see the bottom of the pancake start to look bubbly, golden, and firm enough to move.
Flip and cook for an additional minute or so. Serve. Enjoy!
