    Steps

    • 1

      In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the water and sugar and sprinkle the dry yeast on top. Let it sit for 5-6 minutes until it starts to foam on top.
    • 2

      Add flour, salt, and butter to the bowl, and with the hook attachment mix on low until well combined. Then mix on medium for about 5 minutes until dough is smooth and pulls away from the sides.
    • 3

      Remove dough from bowl and spray bowl well with cooking oil spray. Return dough to the bowl, cover with a cloth or plastic wrap and allow the dough to double in size.
    • 4

      When ready to cook, set the Traeger to 350℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
    • 5

      While dough rises, bring to a boil 10 cups of water and the baking soda.
    • 6

      When dough is ready, divide into 8 pieces. Roll each piece into a 24-inch rope.
    • 7

      Form a U shape with each rope, holding each end of the rope and cross them over each other and press it down on the bottom of the U forming a pretzel.
    • 8

      One by one, place each pretzel in the boiling water for 30 seconds. With a flat spatula take them out and place in a sheet pan.
