I made a special page for pellet smoker recipes because I found that most people use their pellet grill for cooking low and slow, and are looking for recipes that range from easy and quick to for beginners and unique.

Pellet Smoker Recipes

The meat that is best to be used for smoking on a pellet smoker are the ones that contains more fat.

I will link to the separate recipes where you can find the specific instruction on how to smoke them on any pellet smoker.

Smoked Boston Butt

If there is one easy recipe that is also perfect for beginners it is the classic pulled pork made from a Pork Shoulder.

Smoked Pork Tenderloin

A pork tenderloin is a little more challenging, and if not smoked the right way can turn out a little dry.

Pellet Smoker Recipes – My Opinion and Experience

I have to be honest and tell you that I have used pellet smokers but am not the most experienced user.

I love the easy-to-use and so-called set-and-forget option of them. With the newest generation PID controllers they are able to maintain a very consistent temperature.

If you are not sure if a pellet smoker is a good option for you I suggest that you start at the page where I review pellet smokers.

If you are looking for other recipes such as for the grill you can start at my grill recipes page.

I found people searching pellet smoker recipes for specific brands such as Traeger and Pit Boss. All the recipes here can be used on all brands of pellet smokers.
