Traeger Talks Turkey What is it about roasting a turkey that brings out so many insecurities in cooks? We can’t speak for everyone, but we suspect all the options make people nervous. To brine or not to brine? Fresh or frozen? Heritage breed or a supermarket bird? Stuff the bird or serve dressing on the side? It’s enough to make you reach for the Wild Turkey – and we ain’t talkin’ about the homely, wily bird that gives hunters a run for their money each Fall. We’re talking about that bourbon whisky that gives Kentuckians goosebumps. Type: Post

Traeger Thanksgiving: Stuffed Turkey Breast in a Bacon Weave We all know that a beautiful, golden turkey will be the star of your Thanksgiving. But what if that turkey was wrapped in bacon? Your turkey would become legend! After several failed attempts at creating a full turkey wrapped in bacon, we discovered the genuis of the turkey breast. You see, if you wrap the turkey in bacon and then cook, the bacon gets burned. If you wait to put the bacon on late in the cooking process, the skin has already crisped and the fatty bacon melts around the skin and makes a rubbery mess (yuck). By using just the turkey breast, we were able to really infuse the lean turkey meat with the extra richness and flavor from the bacon without overcooking anything. The turkey meat is tender and bursting with salty, bacon-ey goodness and the stuffing inside is some of the best we've ever tasted. Give this one a try for your family's holiday feasting, but be warned; they'll ask you to cook the turkey every year for the rest of forever. Type: Post

Turkey Leftovers: Turkey Tetrazzini And Cover Blubber Admit it, second to the great feast on Thursday we all look forward to the leftovers! Heck, we even cook a few extra pounds of turkey, ham or beef and some additional casseroles of stuffing to ensure we've got a few nights of easy, guaranteed-to-please meals and don't forget those midnight snacks, of course. (Don't we all love that midnight turkey-cranberry-stuffing sandwich enjoyed by the dim light of the refrigerator?) When talking about leftovers you've got a myriad of options for reviving them. There's always the head-to-toe warming turkey soup and a variety of creative sandwich options. But don't forget to make sure that you store your leftovers properly. Once the food has cooled, store all of the remnants in containers with tight-fitting lids. Or to save time, and because you know that you lose all energy as soon as you get hit by that potent L-tryptophan, just stick some CoverBlubber on the bowls and you're done! Type: Post

Injected Herb Roasted Turkey I know, I know. Turkey is typical Thanksgiving fare. Just take a leap of faith on this one.

Make this turkey and be the superstar of your family gathering. Type: Post

Traeger's Pulled Turkey Sandwiches Don't start the riots quite yet. Nobody is saying we should throw out pulled pork. (That's a federal crime, right?) But sometimes you just can't resist the affordable prices on turkey thighs, which you might just be surprised how easily they can be pulled and how crazy-delicious they are. After a good smoke, these turkey thighs develop the perfect smoky barbecue flavor and you'll save yourself a few bucks which doesn't happen as often as we'd all like nowadays. Type: Post

Traeger Tailgating: Injected Drunken Smoked Turkey Legs The #1 requirement for tailgating (or any football game, for that matter) is MEAT. The spicier, the smokier, the bourbony-er, the better. You want a hunk of meat with a convenient handle that you can tear into like a shark on Shark Week. Your wish is our command. We give you Drunken Smoked Turkey Legs. After a leisurely soak in a bourbon/brown sugar/hot sauce bath, we give the turkey legs a good smoke to seal in all of that deeply developed flavor. The end result is a tailgating eat that will be the envy of every face painted fan in the stadium. Type: Post

Bacon-Wrapped Smoked Turkey Legs Fit for a King Everyone deserves that indulgent experience when you feel like a king perched high upon his bejeweled throne, voraciously gnawing on a gigantic leg of turkey. Sure, you can go to Disneyland and buy one OR you could turn on your Traeger and smoke some legs yourself. We figured since we're already indulging, might as well go all the way and wrap some bacon around those legs. (We couldn't help ourselves!) With each succulent bite you take you'll feel just like ole King Henry VIII. Just don't get too carried away ordering around the servants. Type: Post

Spinach and Mushroom Stuffed Turkey Meatloaf We absolutely love meatloaf cooked on the Traeger, in all of its' tasty variations. I mean, we've made Cajun Style Meatloaf, Chili Glazed Meatloaf, even BBQ Chipotle Meatloaf. There is just something exciting about taking an old stand-by dinner and turning it into a most-requested family favorite simply by adding some new ingredients and cooking it on a Traeger. In this delicious variation, we used lean ground turkey instead of the traditional ground beef and filled the meatloaf with a tasty mixture of onions, mushrooms, spinach, and cheese. Oh, and then we topped it with bacon. Because, you know, bacon. So do yourself a solid favor and take meatloaf night up a notch on the flavor pole. Type: Post

Bring in Spring on your Traeger with Fresh Herbs! The groundhog predicted an early spring, and ever since then we can't wait for warmer weather. Sadly, the sun did not get the memo and has not been cooperating. We decided it was time to bring in a little bit of freshness and flavor to lift our spirits. Nothing says spring like fresh, bright herbs. They liven any dish and give a pop of flavor that you just can't get with the dehydrated alternative. Since our herb garden isn't up and running yet, we gathered up all of the herbs we could get our hands on at the supermarket and brought them home with sunshine on the brain. Type: Post

Sausage-Stuffed Acorn Squash The crisp winds of fall are bringing not only those piles of crunchy, dead leaves covering the sidewalks but also wheelbarrows full of squashes, pumpkins and gourds.

With the addition of a few chunks of cream cheese on top to smooth it all out and soothe the heat of the smoked paprika and pepper, this cold weather feast is ready to warm the soul. Type: Post
