The Traeger grill is taking the BBQ world by storm, and here to help backyard grillers make the most of their cookers is Adam McKenzie, creator of the popular recipe site and Instagram account This Jew Can Que with over 200k followers. Adam shares smart and delicious recipes, most of which come together in under an hour using the “hot and fast” cooking method that the Traeger excels at. Even his traditional BBQ recipes cooked “low and slow” are still done in half the time of a traditional smoker, plus Adam simplifies the steps with hardly any maintenance needed during the cook. Readers can now enjoy juicy, tender meats with that craveable smoke flavor even on busy weeknights—a feat that’s nearly impossible with other smokers.

Featured recipes from the book are Colorado-Style Tri-Tip Steak, Beef “Dino” Ribs, Texas-Style Brisket, Pork Shoulder Steaks with Herb Gremolata and Smoked-Fried Chicken Wings. A favorite feature with the Traeger is how effective it is at baking, which Adam showcases in recipes such as Smoked Artichoke Dip and Bourbon Chocolate Pecan Pie. These recipes showcase the best of what Traeger offers: fantastic smoke flavor in a fraction of the time.
