Traeger's Top 10 Labor Day Recipes

Posted by Traeger Service on September 3, 2015

Sun’s out, Grill’s out! Hell yeah, it’s the last long weekend of summer and we’ve compiled our best recipes to help you celebrate Labor Day in true ‘backyard BBQ’ form. As a 133 year old holiday reserved to rest, the only labor you should be doing is firing up the grill. Holler for your favorite people and get your down-home grillin’ and relaxin’ on. If you love a Top 10 list, here’s our Labor Day menu:

#10 Smoke-Roasted Apple Pie

Who doesn’t like to start with dessert. A warm, homemade pie is the epitome of a neighborhood gathering. This recipe will be a grand slam with your Labor Day guests.


#9 Grilled Pork Chops with Citrus Vinaigrette

This recipe is a zest fest, so grab some freshly chopped pork chops. They grill up tender by smoking, then grilling. A lime and orange juice vinaigrette gives a great kick, and your friends and family will be praising the other white meat.

#8 Smoked Burger

This is a juicy, double-fisted, burger that will make your Labor Day BBQ menu more memorable than the 86 year curse.


#7 3-2-1 Baby Back Ribs

Relax, chill by the pool, and drink some brewskis. These labor-free ribs smoke low and slow and by the time the countdown is over, the meat will fall right off the bone.


#6 Grilled Tri-Tip with Chimichurri Sauce

If you’ve got a hankerin’ for the most savory, tender beef, this recipe is a knock-out. Tri-Tip is the perfect wood-fired Labor Day meat that will ensure everyone goes home talkin’ about your mad grillin’ skills.


#5 Grilled Flat Bread Pizza, Three Ways

Keep your kitchen cool and make original wood-fired Pizza right in your backyard. Traeger saturates Labor Day food with delicious smoke flavor so your friends will be saying, “ Molto Delizioso”!

#4 Smoky Triple Cheese Mac 'N Cheese

Nothing is more American than Mac ’n Cheese, with more cheese, no less. Of course we wouldn’t create ordinary Mac; it’s smoked and flavored by our original wood pellet fuel for break-the-bank flavor. Try this on your family and the house will always win.


#3 Grilled Balsamic & Blue Steak

Traeger brings America’s favorite restaurant, the steak house, to your own house. Our wood-fired smoke takes your beef to the next level by enhancing natural meat flavors. Get more bang for your buck on your Labor Day cookout by grilling your favorite cuts of turf n’ turf right in your outdoor kitchen.


#2 Chili Lime Grilled Corn

Fresh summer corn? Yes please! Our grilled corn is barbecued to sweet tenderness and smothered in southwest spices, lime, and dripping with butter. Wear those Labor Day beard drippings like a badge of honor.

#1 Candied Salmon

Our #1 Labor Day food is a sweet, meaty treat that’s so savory you’ll think you’re eating bacon. The salmon caramelizes on the grill and is off the hook with tangy flavor. If your Labor Day BBQ wasn’t a party before, Traeger barbecued food will make it the Labor Day event of the summer with this hearty catch.
