  • Add the rest of the bacon bits and salt to the food processor and pulse until granulated. Refrigerate until later.

Step 2: Fire up Your Traeger

  • Preheat Traeger to 350°F.

Step 3: Prepare the Brownie Batter

  • Prepare the brownies according to the box directions. Pour the batter into a greased baking pan.
  • Drizzle 2 tablespoons of caramel over the brownies.
  • Sprinkle about 1 teaspoon of bacon salt over the brownies.

Step 4: Smoke the Brownies

  • Smoke the brownies for about 20-25 minutes at 350°F and then remove them.
  • Add 2 more tablespoons of caramel sauce and 1 teaspoon of bacon salt over the brownies.
  • Return brownies to the grill grates and cook for about 20-25 more minutes.
  • They are ready when you can insert a toothpick and it comes out clean.

Step 5: Serve and Enjoy

  • You may want to serve the brownies with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

What Temperature to Smoke Brownies at

We will smoke these brownies at 350°F.

You can use a lower heat setting if you want to get some extra smoke flavor. However, you’ll want to increase the cooking temperature to 350°F to bake them.

How Long to Smoke The Brownies

Smoke the brownies for 40-50 minutes with this recipe. The baking time varies slightly based on how done you like your brownies to be.

You will cook the brownies long enough that the batter is fully cooked. When you can poke the brownies with a toothpick and it comes out clean, that was long enough.

What Internal Temperature You Need to Reach For Brownies

Moist fudgy brownies should reach an internal temperature of at least 180°F. For brownies with a cakey texture, aim for an internal temp of 210°F.

The important thing is that the brownie batter isn’t raw. If you insert a toothpick into the middle of the brownies and it comes out clean, then the brownies are ready.

How Can You Tell If Brownies Are Done?

You can tell if the brownies are ready by using a toothpick. Insert the toothpick into the brownies and remove it. If it comes out clean, then you know the brownies are done.

Why Add The Bacon Salt?

Bacon salt is a homemade salt with bacon flavors. It adds a slightly savory aspect to a salty ingredient. Because we’re adding bacon salt to the brownies, use unsalted butter if you need butter.

What Toppings Are Good for Smoked Brownies?

There are so many toppings that will bring your brownies to the next level.

Here are some of our favorite brownie toppings:

  • Shredded coconut
  • Chopped nuts
  • Fresh fruit
  • Pretzels
  • A scoop of ice cream
  • Melty chocolate sauce

Variations for Your Brownies

While the bacon salt and caramel add a layer of complexity, it isn’t for everybody. There are some other variations you can try, just add them in before baking the brownie.

Semisweet Chocolate Chips

Marshmallows

Pretzels

Chopped Nuts.

Adding icing, whipped cream, or pie filling will improve the recipe a notch. Some people may pour the brownie batter over the pie filling. Others will use it as a topping.

Making The Brownies From Scratch

You can even make brownies from scratch with a recipe. This is great if you don’t want to buy a box of brownie mix. Just make sure to use the correct dry ingredients in addition to wet ingredients.

If you do plan to use a box of brownie mix, then you can choose a fun variation. Most stores will have a few different types of brownie mixes to choose from! I would love to try a chocolate fudge brownie mix.

What To Serve With Smoked Brownies

Smoked brownies are a great dessert to match the following dishes:

How To Store Leftover Brownies

Store leftover brownies in an airtight container. You can refrigerate them or store them at room temperature eat with 3 days.

You can freeze brownies for even longer. Just let them thaw out before you eat them!

Best Wood Chips for Brownies

We recommend using fruit wood like applewood or cherrywood for brownies. The mild fruity flavors will add a sweet complexity without overwhelming the recipe.

If you want to try something with a stronger flavor, then you can use hickory or mesquite. It may overpower the brownies, though.
