Let Smoke Ring with Our Favorite Recipes

Let Smoke Ring with recteq’s favorite BBQ recipes!

It’s time for the biggest summer celebration of all, so let’s talk about all our favorite recteq BBQ recipes to celebrate Independence Day! With your recteq wood pellet smoker, you have an ultimate backyard machine that can literally meet any cooking challenge; from dehydrating fruits and veggies, to baking cakes and breads, to grilling almost anything under the hot July sun! With your recteq, you’ve got the tools and temperature control to turn out gourmet 5-star meals, but we know you probably still love the stand-bys just as much as we do. This 4th of July, we are sharing all our favorite Classic BBQ recipes that will leave everyone coming back for seconds.

Pulled Pork: Three Ways to BBQ heaven

Our Ultimate Bark Pork Butt is the epitome of Classic Pulled Pork perfection. With just a few simple ingredients including honey, mustard, and Rossarooski's Honey Rib Rub plus a few hours on the recteq, you’ll be enjoying this mouth-watering pulled pork by the mouthful! We recommend a tangy slaw for a side as well as loads of pickles for the classic BBQ sandwich.

One of the most delicious BBQ recipes in our recteq library is our famous Boston Butt! Cooked low and slow with Rossarooski’s Honey Rib Rub, Dijon mustard, and molasses, this tender, fall-apart pulled pork can be served on a soft bun with your choice of sides or build a BBQ bowl for a low-carb alternative everyone will love.

Want to take your summer celebration into real party mode? You can’t smoke anything better than iconic, delicious, buttery pulled pork that melts-in-your-mouth. This Pulled Pork from the recteq kitchen has all the flavors you love in BBQ with an epic Carolina-style, vinegar-based sauce to top it off. The secret for this flavor-blasted pulled pork is the “mop” used to keep it moist while it cooks!

Brisket You can’t get Enough of!

Once you master this culinary feat, you’ll be in the big grill leagues. The secret is, the recteq Brisket isn’t actually that difficult at all. You do have to have patience for this extended low and slow cook time, but with the recteq App, monitoring your progress will be painless. Ben’s Heffer Dust and an injector give this Brisket more flavor than you’ve ever tasted before!

You don’t have to visit Texas to get the incredible taste Texan BBQ cooks are known for! We can’t celebrate summer without a taste of Texas Style Brisket! Like most of these options, cooking low and slow is going to make this Brisket irresistible. The simple rub is created with pantry staples for a delicious foundation of flavor that will really pop. You’ll want to cook this one to probe-tender (when you reach about 203° F). Letting the Brisket rest is a crucial part of the cooking process, and we recommend a rest of about 45-60 minutes. Serve this culinary masterpiece with mashed potatoes and corn on the cob for a classic meal.

Epic, Best-Ever Steak

Looking to really impress 4th of July guests with an upscale summer meal? Look no further than the Best Ever Reverse Sear Ribeye Steak with Garlic Herb Butter. This is a decadent take on steak that will be the hit of the summer. A trio of fresh herbs, butter, and Ben’s Heffer Dust make this main dish an absolute show-stopper! Go classic with baked potatoes and salad or dress it up with Kung Pow Brussels Sprouts and Grilled Elote Salad.
