Whether you’re a bone-in or out type of wing eater, you'll never want to eat chicken wings the same way again after trying our Smoked Chicken Wings recipe—so get your game on and get smoking.

Smoked Walleye

Your catch of the day will be a total catch at the dinner table with our Smoked Walleye Recipe. Instead of grilling your walleye the traditional way, move your fish to the smoker and witness pure smokey magic.

Season your walleye with our Buried Treasure Seasoning to reel in the perfect flavor. Serve your smoked walleye with a splash of fresh lemon for a nice citrusy surprise in every bite. 




Smoked Cream Cheese

Make your appetizer both memorable and appetizing with our Smoked Cream Cheese recipe. This unique bacon-loaded smoked cream cheese boat is the perfect sidekick to a plate of pasta chips. 

Use our sweet and spicy Notorious P.I.G. to season all sides of your cream cheese block. Fold it up in tin foil and let that baby smoke for an hour and a half. While your cream cheese is doing its thing in the smoker, you can start boiling your crispy pasta chips perfect for dunking into that smokey block of creamy goodness.

Smoked Turkey Legs

Bring the fun of theme park food into your home with Smoked Turkey Legs. With a dash of Cock-a-Doodle-Brew, our beer-infused smoked turkey legs recipe will win you and your family over.

Start by placing your turkey legs on a sheet tray and season with olive oil and Cock-a-Doodle-Brew. Let your turkey legs smoke for approximately an hour and a half before increasing the temperature. We know you can’t contain your anticipation, but once you’ve raised the heat, you’ll want to smoke your turkey legs for an extra 45 minutes to an hour. 

Smoked Brisket

Get the tender smoked brisket you’re craving the hot and fast way. Yes, our Hot and Fast method of smoking your brisket cuts down on smoking time, making this recipe an easy and delicious one to whip up whether you’re planning a weekend get-together or a weeknight dinner. 

Steak lovers, this one’s for you. Our Hot and Fast Smoked Brisket is juicy, tender, and has a steak-like flavor as opposed to the more traditional low and slow brisket. To kick things off, season your brisket generously with our BBQ General. Meanwhile? Fire up that smoker for a quick and easy smoker recipe.


Smoked Salmon

Many pairings just complement one another. Coffee and cream, peanut butter and jelly, peas and carrots, and salmon in the smoker. Smoked salmon not only tastes incredible, but it also has plenty of health benefits to boot, making this an optimal healthy smoker recipe. 

It’s not a surprise that smoking fish takes much longer than simply grilling it—but the taste is incomparable and worth a little patience. The secret to a mouth-watering smoked salmon is in our Cinnamon Spice Rub. Seriously, our smoked salmon recipe will have your hook, line, and sinker from the first bite. 




Smoked Bologna

This isn’t your average bologna. No, this not-so-mysterious meat is elevated with yellow mustard and our Texas Brisket Rodeo Rub for a piece of bologna with immense flavor. 

You can either use your own homemade bologna or bologna cut by your local butcher for this recipe. Slice and dice it any way you like, and use this tasty treat as an appetizer or the star of your next sandwich. 




Smoked French Onion Soup

We’re taking the classic French Onion Soup and giving it an upgrade. Our Smoked French Onion Soup recipe is full of tantalizing smokey recipes your tastebuds won’t be able to get enough of.
