BBQ Cooking with Traeger for Superbowl Celebrations

If you’re looking for the perfect way to cook up a delicious spread for your Superbowl celebration, look no further than Traeger natural hardwood pellet BBQs and Smokers. For true barbecue enthusiasts, cooking with wood-fired heat is an art form and Traeger is the ultimate tool to master it. Traeger grills are powered by 100% all-natural hardwood pellets, which burn much hotter and more efficiently than charcoal. In addition to being temperature-controlled―so you don’t have to worry about flare-ups―the pellets can be flavored in a variety of ways depending on what type of food you’re grilling or smoking. With Traeger, it’s easy to customize your cooking experience every time. When it comes to BBQing for a big event like the Superbowl, Traeger has got you covered. Start by prepping your Classic Prime Rib Roast early in the day so that it gets plenty of time in the smoker before game time arrives. Once the meat is ready, fire up the grill and throw on some classic sides like Smoked Macaroni & Cheese or Bacon-Wrapped Corn on the Cob while monitoring the internal temperatures using a digital thermometer. For an extra touch of class―and added flavor―try adding some wood chips like mesquite or hickory directly onto your coals just before serving your main dishes. This radiant heat will give your meal a beautiful smoky finish that will have everyone reaching for seconds! And since there’s no need to monitor temperatures constantly as with traditional charcoal grills, you’ll be free to enjoy every minute of your party without having to stand over hot coals all day long. By cooking outdoors in this low-maintenance style, you’ll also be able to free up space indoors so that everyone can enjoy their food without feeling cramped! Whether you’re experienced when it comes to barbecues or just starting out, investing in a Traeger make sure that your Superbowl celebration is one everyone will remember!
