Your friends will give you more than just a nickel for a taste of these pickles.


1 lb Persian Cucumbers

1 cup salt

1/2 cup sugar

6 cloves garlic

4 bay leaves

4 tbsp black peppercorn

2 tbsp white peppercorn

4 tbsp fennel seeds

1 tbsp whole coriander

1 tbsp red pepper flake

1 bunch dill

2 cups white wine vinegar

2 cups ice water


When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Leave the temperature set to Smoke.

Place the whole, washed cucumbers directly on the grill grate and smoke for 30-45 minutes. Remove from grill and cut into desired shape (coins or spears). Set aside until the brine is ready.

In a medium sized saucepan, bring all remaining ingredients, except dill and ice water, to a boil over medium high heat. Simmer for 5-10 minutes then remove from heat and steep 20 minutes more. Pour brine over ice water to cool.

Once brine has cooled, pour over the cucumbers and weigh the cucumbers down with a few plates to ensure they are completely submerged. Let sit 24 hours before use.

Serve as part of the Traeger Ultimate Picnic Spread. Enjoy!
