Smoke Your Thanksgiving Turkey the Easy Way

Why not try something a little different this year for Thanksgiving? Our smoked turkey recipe starts out with a super simple dry brining process using Caboose Kansas City Southern Rib Rub. We use our Traeger grill to smoke and roast our turkey, but you can follow the same process with a simple smoker box on your grill and finish the roasting in your oven.

Smoked Pork Shoulder with Old No. 1

Smoked pork shoulder (or smoked pulled pork) is a summer BBQ staple. It's easy, and can be made from an inexpensive cut of meat: a pork butt roast. And while this smoked pulled pork recipe takes some time, it's super easy. We smoke it on our Traeger grill and season with our very own Old No. 1 BBQ Rub.

Smoky Grilled Roasted Carrots

Who says carrots have to be eaten raw or steamed? Something magical happens when you combine vegetables and a grill. This grilled carrots recipe makes a perfect (and healthy) side dish for steaks, roasts, and burgers. Coconut oil and our Abilene Depot Steak & Burger Seasoning lend a fresh, nutty flavor and help to crisp up the outside of the carrots, leaving the inside deliciously sweet.

Finger Steaks or Steak Fingers? Either way, crispy deliciousness

Finger steaks, steak fingers -- whatever you call them, they make great snacks. Typical finger steaks are breaded and deep-fried.  We coat them with a breading made from a mixture of shredded unsweetened coconut, flaxseed meal, and almond meal, which bakes to a delicious crispy texture in your oven.

Oven Baked Spicy Sweet Potato Fries

Learning how to make sweet potato fries is a must, especially when you live in Idaho (AKA the "Famous Potatoes" state) like we do.  If you don't know how to do this, it's time to learn.  You can thank me later. Whether you use sweet potatoes or yams, you'll love this recipe.  I prefer yams due to their bright orange color.  They're just beautiful.

You don't have to have fancy equipment to enjoy drool-worthy ribs. Learn how to cook ribs in the oven and finish them on the grill -- it's the ticket to a deliciously tender, but not mushy, spare rib. And if you don't have a grill, you can get that delicious caramelization using your oven's broiler or a grill pan on your stovetop.
