We have rounded up the best smoker recipes for a hearty autumn meal.
Autumn is the perfect time to experiment with new smoker recipes. When the dark nights roll in and the air starts to get cooler, our choice of recipes usually reflects our bodies’ craving for something a bit heartier and flavoursome.
When people think of smoker recipes, they tend to picture beef briskets and other expensive cuts of meat. Would you be shocked if we told you to make a stew in your smoker oven? Smokers are incredibly versatile, so long as you have a decent skillet or casserole dish, you can make virtually anything.
