Burly Beef Wellington

Don your tuxedo t-shirt, roll your Traeger to the front yard, and toss some mesquite pellets into your wood-fired grill for this massive hunk of manly meat. We’ve hijacked the Brits of their hoity-toity beef wellington and created a brawny, lip-smacking, smoldering version of fancy meatloaf. Encompassed in a crusted, buttery shell, you’ll be staring down the barrel of a colossal, pork-infused slab of beefy goodness. The heady, BBQ aroma will spread far and wide, so get ready to ward off those pesky party crashers or welcome them to the bash. Go on and get some—Traeger-style, baked meatloaf with a smoke ring will make your meal. Chip, I’m all jacked up on meatloaf!

  • Smoke-Roasted Lamb Shanks

    Low, slow cooking is the key to turning this humble cut of meat into something tender and rich-tasting. Mashed potatoes are a nice accompaniment.


    Lamb is non-negotiable at many Greek Easter celebrations, from whole lambs spit-roasted over a wood fire to braised lamb shanks. Leg of lamb is a beautiful cut of meat to do on your Traeger if you are serving a small number of people, 6 to 8. Coat quartered potatoes or potato wedges with olive oil and salt and pepper and roast for about 45 minutes to an hour, depending on their size.


    Rich, succulent, butterflied lamb, marinated and grilled to perfection.

  • Moroccan Ground Meat Kebabs (Kofta)

    Is there a package of ground meat in your refrigerator/freezer that’s daring you to try something different? We suggest kofta, the savory meat kebabs that are known as comfort food in much of the world. Serve with warm pita bread and a tomato salad with sweet onions or a garlicky yogurt sauce.

  • Lollipop Lamb Chops with Rosemary Sauce
    Lollipop Lamb Chops with Rosemary Sauce

    Why the term “lollipop”? Because petite lamb rib chops resemble a lollipop with a perfect nugget of meat on one end and a convenient bone “handle” on the other. Ask your butcher to french the lamb chops—that is, scrape the bone clean of fat and gristle. Or do it yourself.


    If you’ve ever eaten gyros at a street fair, you likely remember the meat is typically cooked on tall vertical spits and shaved off by workers—usually men—wielding serious-looking knives. You may think of these savory sandwiches as Greek, but their culinary cousins include Mexico’s tacos al pastor, the Middle East’s shawarma, and Turkey’s döner kebabs. Serve with the suggested tzatziki sauce, garlic mayonnaise, or tahini. Rice pilaf rounds out the meal. Leftovers are great the next day.
