Any Camp Chef enthusiasts?


My love of BBQing has been renewed. Over Memorial Day weekend I bought a new grill.
Itís a Camp Chef ZG pellet grill that DICKíS Sporting Goods had on sale. Since then Iíve used this thing every week. And just about everything that goes on it comes out tasting fantastic.
Iím no pit master but Iíve been very pleased with what Iíve been able to do with it.
Iíve done-
Baby back ribs
St. Louis ribs
Hamburgers, hot dogs and sausages
Smoked 4 cheese macaroni and cheese
Stuffed jalapeŮos wrapped in bacon
London broil
Pork butt
Smoked baked beans in a cast iron skillet
Smoked sweet potatoes
Smoked crispy chicken drumsticks with BBQ/buffalo sauce
Some photos of my results-

I softened some cream cheese in the microwave and mixed shredded sharp cheddar into it. Then I gutted the peppers and used a sandwich bag with the corner cut off to pipe the cheese mixture in.

Excellent! Youíve inspired me. Yesterday, I bought poblanos (4)
I think Iíll get creative with them.

Re: Any Camp Chef enthusiasts?


I’m going to try a similar recipe this weekend, except using sweet banana peppers that I’ll char and skin before stuffing them.
Also picked up an 8 lbs pork butt to smoke. And I have a rope of Amish made sweet sausage to throw on too. And perhaps some ribeye hamburgers. Dad requested those.

9.3 lbs of pork butt went on at 11:00 PM yesterday at 225*.
That’s the really nice thing about these grills. It maintained temperature all night on its own. Just had to make sure the hopper had enough pellets when I went to bed.

Perfect bark. Nice and moist inside. And the smoked ribeye burgers were great too.

Not to resurrect an old thread but the smoker cranked out some great food for the holidays.
Made a London broil with smoked baked potatoes and smoked green bean casserole for Christmas Eve.
Then smoked a chocolate pecan pie and chocolate cheese cake for Christmas Day.

Did some smoked glazed meatloaf tonight. Iíve made it before and itís become a family favorite.
Meatloaf had a great smoke ring on it.

It all looks good but when you said camp chef I immediately thought my iron skillet on a campfire frying bacon and eggs in the morning and trout in the evening....

I have that skillet. Works great on the sidekick that mounts to the pellet smoker.

Re: Any Camp Chef enthusiasts?


I smoked a bunch of cheese for Christmas gifts this year. Added cheese knives to the gifts too. I turned the knife handles out of walnut I had been saving in my scrap lumber pile.

For Christmas day gathering I smoked a boston butt and a sausage n cheese fatty.
Using grills and smokers are a lot of fun!

Re: Any Camp Chef enthusiasts?


Indeed it is.
Every Christmas I indulge in scrapple. My wife hates it. So I just use the griddle on the sidekick and cook it outside with my eggs.
I used to only grill during the summer. But now with the Camp Chef I cook out all year round.
And for some reason we now host all the summer BBQs.......

Have you ever tried putting some hot breakfast sausage mixed with your ground beef when making your meatloaf? It is really good. Wonderful looking food. Judy mixes 1 pound of sausage to two or 2 1/2 pounds ground chuck and other stuff.

When I smoke bacon wrapped peppers, Judy mixes cream cheese with already fried crumbled hot breakfast sausage and fried bacon crumbled. We stuff the peppers with this mix wrap with bacon and smoke, they are always a hit around here.

I smoke my butts a little lower at 200 degrees but nothing wrong with the way you are doing it though, it's all good.
