One of the things I love about cooking on the Yoder Smokers pellet grills is the versitility of foods that they allow me to prepare. I’m not limited to just smoking pork butts, or only grilling steaks. These cookers have the range and consistency to do it all! It’s that temperature consistency that makes even baking a cinch. Whether it’s dump cake out of a box, made from scratch pound cake, or cheesecake bars, I can count on the smoker doing the job as well or better than the oven inside the house.
I mean, the title of the recipe tells you everything you need to know to want to COOK THIS NOW! And the fact that the marinade also has a jalapeño kick is a bonus! This one is super easy and only requires a handful of ingredients, and I promise it’ll make for some killer fajitas!
If your New Year’s resolution is to eat more cheese, then you’re in luck. We’ve got cheese. Creamy, delicious Brie smothered in raspberry jalapeno jam and wrapped up in buttery, flaky puff pastry. You know you want it.

You may be familiar with the turducken; a chicken stuffed into a duck stuffed into a turkey. It’s become quite popular as a holiday dinner centerpiece in the last several years. Well, it turns out that the idea translates pretty well to the squash world. So, we’re stuffing a zucchini inside a butternut squash inside a spaghetti squash. Unfortunately, spag-but-chini doesn’t have the same ring as turducken, so we present to you the Squash-ducken! This savory vegetarian dish has all of those Thanksgiving flavors you’re familiar with and works great as a side or main dish alternative for your friends and family who aren’t meat eaters.
Whether or not you’re looking for a cool weather salad to impress your guests this Fall, you’ve found it. Big bold flavors make this a perfect entrée salad, or you can cut down the portions and serve it on the side.
Often, during the cooler seasons our sides can get a bit heavy; a bit dreary. Mashed potatoes are great. Braised veggies are fantastic. But sometimes you need that sunshine on a cold winter day to wake you up. That’s exactly what this broccoli salad is. It has these wonderful Autumn elements like apples, rosemary and smoky mustard, but it also brings a beautiful brightness through lime juice, honey and almonds. So, when you’re ready for a little sunshine, give this recipe a try.
Chef Tom shows you just how simple a truly fantastic Thanksgiving turkey can be. By spatchcocking, brining and roasting the bird at 325º in our Yoder Smokers YS640 we end up with a wonderful roasted smokey flavor that compliments any other dishes you want to serve alongside your turkey.
The name says it all! Well, almost. The name doesn’t mention how incredibly easy these are to prepare. It doesn’t matter if you’re tailgating or throwing a holiday party, this appetizer is perfect for the occasion.
