8 Propane Smoker Recipes (You Never Thought About Trying!)

Have you recently purchased a smoker and need some propane smoker recipes? 

You are in the right place.

Getting a new smoker is one of the most exciting things we can do.

We all know about smoked sausage and smoked brisket, but what else is out there?

In this post, I will give you my favorite propane smoker recipes you may not have thought about!

Here are my favorite smoker recipes, or for any smoker really.

Just make the necessary adjustments for your particular smoker, if it is electric, gas, charcoal, pellet, offset, or even your own DIY smoker setup

Essential Propane Smoker Recipes

Here are my top 5 go-to recipes, for when I’m firing up my propane smoker!

Smoked Bacon

We all love smoked bacon, but not many of us know how easy it is to make it at home!

When you make it at home you also have the option to cut it how thick you want, and I love me some thick-cut smoked bacon!

I have a super easy-to-follow smoked bacon recipe perfect for those who are looking for a step-by-step guide for the first time.

You will never buy bacon again. 

Smoked Turkey Legs

Smoking a whole turkey can be a little overwhelming, which is understandable.

And let’s be real, we hardly ever need to cook a whole turkey. Turkey legs are a great alternative, and even better they are cheap!

Cherry Chiptole Smoked Duck

Duck is one of my favorite meats. It’s super strong and can handle a lot of flavors.

We absolutely nailed this smoked duck recipe. It has all the classic flavors that pair so perfectly with duck, but instead of roasting it in the oven, we uses a smoker. Smoking the duck gives it a unique flavor you can’t get from the oven. Not sure what to serve with your duck? See some delicious ideas here.

Smoked Venison Ribs

We have all had baby back ribs or spare ribs, but what about venison ribs?

Don’t let the strange name put you off, venison is the gateway drug to game meats.

It’s slightly more flavorsome than beef or chicken, but not as full-on as elk or bison.

Give this smoked venison recipe a go, you will be pleasantly surprised. 

Harissa Smoked Prime Rib


Prime rib is the perfect cut for smoking. This recipe is a real beauty if you like spice! Harissa is a paste made from North African chillis – and it is hot!

Maybe leave this for the weekend you don’t have the kids or other guests over to give it a test run.

If you are a lover of spice I guarantee you will make this again and again.
