Here are some easy smoker recipes we’ve made that have come out amazing! From beef to chicken and pork with a side of vegetables you’ll fall in love.
Whether you’re a beginner or pro you might want to try some easy smoker recipes this week! We have a bunch of them that not only have we fallen in love with but our kids rave about them too (they’re the worst critics). If you’re new to smoking meats we have step by step instructions on how to make each one and instructional videos for most of them too like these:
Let us know which one is your favorite or if you’ve made something we need to try!
Let’s start with the basics and what you need to get started making these easy smoker recipes
- Wood chips – we have bought this variety pack for years which is great because you don’t want the same type for every recipe. We also love these Jack Daniel’s wood chips which is what we used for the loin you see above.
- Smoker – we have a simple electric smoker right now but are looking into getting this nicer/larger version now that we smoke meats often! If you are just starting a basic model will be fine. All of these smoker recipes will work for an electric or other smoker models.
- Meat and vegetables – you can smoke anything! It’s not just for large cuts of meat like brisket or roasts, you can cook potatoes and other vegetables too to pair with your main dish and let me tell you it brings deliciousness to the next level!
Really when it comes to smoking meats it comes down to great wood chips and being patient! Slow and steady is the key to really bring out the flavors of your meat and/or vegetables in your smoker.
Whether you have an electric smoker or not the steps are generally the same and you can really think outside the box when creating unique smoker recipes.
Wrap just about anything in bacon and OH MY is all I have to say.
Dry rubs are ideal when you’re creating easy smoker recipes because it won’t drip all over but rather permeate the meat and create the perfect bite.
