There’s nothing better than sinking your teeth into delicious, smoky food that was cooked on the grill. With charcoal or gas grills, cooking food is an art form, and it takes a lot of precision and skill to make the perfect meal. That being said, if you want the amazing flavor without the dedication to standing outside while it cooks, a pellet grill may be the perfect solution for you! Check out our last post where we talked about everything you need to know before buying a pellet grill, and find the perfect pellet grill for you and your family, as well as other home and garden supplies, at Gateway Design and Home in Loveland today! In the meantime, continue reading below for a few ideas of what you should cook on your grill when you finally bring it home.


Whether it’s winter, spring, summer, or fall, there’s never a bad time to grill up a rack of ribs for the family. To make your ribs absolutely scrumptious, you should first start with your favorite meat rub. You can use an already mixed rub that you buy from the store, or you can create your own using brown sugar, salt, chili powder, onion, garlic, black pepper, cumin, coriander, and a little chipotle powder. If you want your ribs to be perfect, it’s best to cook them at a low temperature for several hours. Luckily, with your new pellet grill, all you have to do is set the temperature and let the grill do the rest!

Shish Kabobs

Shish kabobs are an underrated food, but they are something the whole family can enjoy. The best part about this dish is that you can customize it however you like. For example, a traditional shish kabob may be a stick with meat, onion, pepper, mushroom, and maybe a few other ingredients. However, if you would like to mix things up, you can always marinate your meat in whatever sauce or flavors you would like, as well as choose more seasonal veggies such as zucchini. Once your skewers are ready to go, simply place them on your pellet grill, set the temperature, and come back once they’re done!


Grills are typically used to cook meat, veggies, and occasionally other types of dishes, but that doesn’t mean that cooking dessert on the grill is impossible! Because pellet grills relate more closely to convection ovens than gas or charcoal grills, it makes them the perfect tool for making decadent and slightly smoky desserts. Consider using your grill to cook a batch of cookies or even your morning cinnamon rolls! You can even consider combining sweet and savory ingredients into a mouthwatering dessert, such as a bacon pecan sweet potato pie. There are countless possibilities, and it never hurts to add a little smoky flavor to your dish.
