Yes, you can smoke soup on a @traeger. No really! Its a unique and delicious way to add wood fired flavor to your favorite meal, chicken noodle soup. Check out this recipe from Chef Jason to try on your smoker.

Yield: Serves 8-10 People
Prep time: 20 Minutes
Cook time: 60-90 minutes, depending on smoke time

Ingredients:

PART 1 – SMOKED VEGETABLES

4 tbsp Oil, Olive Blend
6 Ribs Celery, With Leaves Diced Medium
2 ea Carrots, Jumbo, Washed Diced Medium
1 ea Onion, Red, Small, peeled Diced Small
1 ea Zucchini, Medium, Washed Diced Medium
1 ea Yellow Squash, Medium, Washed Diced Medium
2 tbsp Garlic, Fresh Minced or Crushed
2 ea Bay Leaves Whole
1 tbsp Italian Herbs, Dried

PART 2 – MAKING THE SOUP

3 cups Chicken, Cooked Diced or Pulled
1 can Tomatoes, Diced, Fire Roasted with juice
2 qts Stock, Chicken
3 cups Pasta, Cooked al dente

Preparation:

Prep all vegetables above as instructed. Load pellet hopper with Reserve Blend Pellets, ignite Traeger and set temp to 200˚.
Add the Dutch Oven to allow it to fully heat up during warm up in a medium mixing bowl add the Oil, Veggies, Garlic, Bay leaves and Italian herbs, mix well. Place the veggies on the perforated grilling pan and place into the Traeger.

Smoke the vegetables at 200˚ for approx. 30-45 minutes, depending on desired smoke flavor. Once veggies are done, using an oven proof glove or mitt, remove from the Traeger. Turn Traeger to 450˚ and let it reach temperature. Carefully add the smoked vegetables to the Dutch Oven.

Add the chicken, canned tomatoes, chicken stock and pasta and stir to combine. Cover the Dutch Oven and allow the soup to come to a simmer (approx. 20 minutes). Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper as needed. If soup is too thick, adjust with extra chicken stock. If soup is too thin, allow to cook uncovered and reduce the chicken stock. Total cook time for soup once it is simmering, should be approx. 30 minutes.

Once soup is done, using an oven proof glove or mitt, remove from the Traeger. Serve with fresh bread and garnish with parsley leaves. Chef’s Tip: If you don’t want to smoke the vegetables, omit that part and heat Traeger to 450˚. Then sauté vegetables until soft and add the chicken, tomatoes, stock and pasta and complete as shown above.

**Note, soup will have less smoke flavor without smoked vegetables**

Its fire safety month, and a fire extinguisher is essential to have close by in the event a fire emergency breaks out. 🧯 It can help stop a small fire from growing larger if you are prepared. Having fire extinguishers placed in easy to access locations on every level of your home and in common spaces like the kitchen, laundry room and garage and knowing how to use them and when it is time to recharge are the first steps to protecting your home and family.

Install fire extinguishers close to an exit and keep your back to a clear exit when you use the device so you can make an easy escape if the fire cannot be controlled. If the room fills with smoke, leave immediately.

To operate a fire extinguisher, remember the word PASS:

Pull the pin.

Hold the extinguisher with the nozzle pointing away from you, and release the locking mechanism.

Aim low. Point the extinguisher at the base of the fire.

Squeeze the lever slowly and evenly.

Sweep the nozzle from side-to-side.

Stop by Downtown Walnut Creek Ace and pick up  fire extinguishers for your home, business and even your vehicle.

Look at this beautiful porter house steak cooked up on a Traeger by Rosalie | Castironskillz] 🤤 🥩 What are you all grilling up this weekend?

Reposted from Rosalie | Castironskillz]

Sometimes it’s nice to skip the expensive tab & stay home for date night and reverse sear a #porterhouse on the @traegergrills using the Blackened Saskatchewan Rub 🥩 

Best smoked on the grate at 200 F for about 25 minutes, 115 F internal temp. Let a lightly oiled skillet preheat simultaneously. Take off, let rest and crank up to 500 F. Sear on the skillet 1 minute each side, then 30 seconds each side. Remove from heat and add 1/4 stick of butter with rosemary & garlic. Baste for another minute and let rest again for 5. Internal temp should be 130-135 F. 

Pairs well with a @buffalotrace Old Fashioned 🥃
