Costco had a road show on, I had money burning a hole in my pocket... so I came home with a smoker. While most of the photos here were taken with a potato camera, I did take one shot with the real camera of the finished beef short ribs.

Sweet jebus there were amazing.

The new toy, Traeger Texas Pro.

5 spice dry rub put on the night before and then left in the fridge.


Short ribs after 2 hours smoking. After this they were wrapped in foil and tossed back on for another 2-2.5 hours

Once removed from the foil I did a glaze and set it back on the smoker for another 15-20 min.


Overall, I foresee myself getting a lot of use out of this smoker.
