So if you have a smoker sitting out in the yard, I suggest you bookmark this list of Pit Boss recipes.

Because once summer hits, they’re all you’ll want to make!

1. Pit Boss Smoked Turkey with Maple BBQ Rub

Smoked turkey is a fun twist on a classic holiday favorite. It’s great when you need to feed a crowd, too, as it’s loved by kids and grown-ups alike.

In this recipe, you’ll achieve a wonderful deep smoky flavor and crisp skin with only three hours of total cook time.

The meat is so juicy you can serve it without any gravy at all. But if you want a complete meal, try one of these yummy grilled chicken sides.

2. Pellet Grill Mac and Cheese

If you need to jazz up your favorite comfort food, this pellet grill mac & cheese recipe is the perfect dish to serve!

Deliciously cheesy and lightly smoked, it’s sure to impress the whole family.

It takes a little longer to make than a box, but it’s so worth it in the end. In fact, I bet you’ll never go back to regular mac & cheese again.

3. Smoked Chicken Legs

Chicken legs are known to be the most juicy and flavorful part of the chicken, but when you smoke them, they become downright addictive.

Between the crispy, crackly skin and the tender chicken meat, these are about as good as it gets.

Though this recipe is for the Pit Boss grill, you could just as easily make it on any smoker, like the Traeger Grill.

4. Traeger Smoked Dry Rub Chicken Wings

Chicken wings are always a hit, but with the blend of seasonings in this recipe, you’ll want to make double.

Enter your email below & we'll send it straight to your inbox.

Though there are many different ways to prepare chicken wings at home, many of them use a deep fryer or a lot of oil. 

That’s what’s so great about using a smoker! Pellet grills cook with no grease and no mess.

All you’re left with is juicy, crispy chicken skin and succulent meat with a perfect amount of seasoning.

5. Pit Boss Smoked Brisket

Nothing beats the burst of flavors you get when you bite into a tender beef brisket.

Cooking brisket can take up a lot of your time, but this Pit Boss recipe captures the rich, smoky flavors – minus the tricky steps.

Serve the brisket with a side of crunchy coleslaw to contrast the melt-in-your-mouth meat. Oh, and a bottle of Pinot Noir doesn’t hurt either.

6. Pit Boss Smoked Prime Rib with Horseradish Cream

For many, prime rib is the ultimate holiday roast. It’s succulent, flavorful, and juicy – but it can be hard to capture that rich smokey flavor without hours in the kitchen. 

Luckily, this recipe does just that, and it’s surprisingly easy, too.

Just cook it nice and low until the center reaches about 110°F. From there, you’ll want to crank the heat to get a nice crust.

7. Peppered Smoked Jerky 

It’s hard to find a good jerky that’s not loaded with salt, sugar, and a bunch of additives. But did you know it’s actually pretty easy to make your own?

With the Pit Boss pellet grill, it’s easier than ever to make your own tender, perfectly spiced jerky.

Choose from endless possibilities to season the meat, making it savory, sweet, or spicy.

8. Easy No-Fail Pellet Smoker Ribs

Fall of the bone ribs have never been easier to make!

If you’re new to smoking meat and you’re afraid of messing up, this easy-peasy smoked rib recipe is a fantastic place to start.

The secret is to use Jennifer Banz’s special rib rub recipe.

That, and a Pit Boss pellet grill, which gives these bad boys a sweet and smoky kick that’ll have your taste buds doing a happy dance.

9. Pit Boss Baby Back Ribs

Who doesn’t love smoked meats? Not only are they ridiculously tasty, but they’re infused with so much moisture – the juices practically dribble down your chin!

So, why not delight your family and friends with a special baby back ribs recipe that’s brimming with sweet, roasty goodness.

Trust me; this is one of the best grill recipes around.

10. Best Smoked Salmon

Salmon’s rich flavor and buttery texture make the perfect base for this recipe’s sweet, smokey flavor.

It’s a little more delicate than brisket or pork ribs but super simple to prepare.

Cook this up on a pellet grill for a truly special Friday night feast in under an hour.

11.  Cooking Beer Can Chicken On Wood Pellet Grill 

Did you know that beer and chicken are a match made in heaven?

If you’ve never tried beer can chicken before; I can’t recommend it enough.

Not only is it crazy-delicious, but it’s also unbelievably easy to make! And I daresay it’s tastier than a store-bought rotisserie chicken.

12. Grilled Shrimp with Honey Garlic Sauce

Shrimp skewers are a thing of beauty, don’t you think?

They cook in no time, soak up flavor like a sponge, and make such a nice change from the heavier red meats and hotdogs.

Using a skewer means you can flip these babies in one, and you don’t have to worry about losing any to the grill.

With the smokey flavor and bold spices, this might just become your new favorite grill recipe.

13. Smoked Flank Steak

Have you ever had a flank steak? I get it; it’s not a particularly revered cut of beef in the fancy world of steaks.

But this cut of beef has so much potential when marinated properly, smoked on a Pit Boss grill, and reverse-seared to perfection!

Try it and let me know how much you love it!

14. Smoked Chuck Roast

Ahhh, summer! The perfect time to host a backyard barbecue and hang out with friends.

And if you want to be anointed the One True Pit Boss, you have to try this smoked chuck roast.

If you’ve never cooked a chuck roast on a Pit Boss pellet grill, don’t worry – it’s easy, and it results in juicy, tender meat that tastes phenomenal.

15. Smoked Salsa

Add a twist to the usual chips and dip with this smoked salsa recipe. Full of fresh flavors infused with a smoky tang, it will knock your socks off.

This recipe takes a little time, but it’s super simple. Just fire up your Pit Boss grill, slice some veggies, place it on the grill, chop, and season!

Just a handful of ingredients and a bit of your time makes the perfect salsa dip that’s sure to impress on movie nights or picnic dates.

16. Smoked Cream Cheese Block

This smoked cream cheese recipe is really easy to make, yet it’s so good! And depending on how you season it, it can be used as a sweet spread or savory dip.

All you need is some cream cheese, your favorite seasonings, and your trusty Pit Boss grill.

Serve it with crackers, game night snacks, or as part of a tasty cheese ball for the holidays.

No matter how you use it, this smoked cream cheese block is a must-try.

17. Smoked Corned Beef Brisket

St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner. So, why not make this year extra special with this smoked corned beef brisket?

It’s rich, flavorful, and perfectly tender. Plus, the added smoke will blow any other corned beef out of the water.

18. Smoked Queso Dip

I have a serious weak spot for queso dip. But nothing beats the creamy, cheesy goodness of a queso dip infused with a smoky flavor.

You’ll see this recipe takes it up a notch with ground beef and jalapeños, too. That makes it wonderfully hearty and delightfully meaty.

19. Smoked Corn on the Cob

Once you see how easy and delicious food from the smoker is, you’ll want to use it as often as possible.

And while it’s warm and busy cooking the perfect brisket or rack of ribs, why not make the most and try this fantastic smoked corn-on-the-cob recipe?

The smoky flavor perfectly matches the buttery, sweet taste of the corn, leaving you and your guests craving more.

20. Smoked Shotgun Shells

I had to finish this roundup with something unique and fun. And I’d say this recipe fits the bill!

Seasoned ground meat, bold spices, and plenty of cheese get stuffed into pasta and then rolled in bacon.

As the name suggests, they look like shotgun shells when they’re done.

It takes a few steps to make, but it’s beyond worth it. One bite, and you won’t want to share!
