Traeger Bacon Cornbread

I’ve been seeing a number of different recipes that can be used on a Traeger pellet smoker. I thought I would try my hand at some cornbread. Since I have the smoker. And I enjoy cornbread tremendously at bbq’s.

I decided to make it in a disposable pan since I didn’t want any smoke marks on my usual bakeware. It works fine and can be reused if you wash it so don’t worry. The pan I used has been used many times for different stuff.

The bread gets a little bit of smoke to it but not overly so. Probably because the pan contains it. You also won’t see a lot of browning, but the bread is done and wonderfully moist.

I had my pan to one side of the smoker which left some room for meat. I smoked some Johnsonville smoked sausages which I split and placed on the grate. They cooked together and both the corn bread and sausage were done at the same time.

Alternatively, you could put an additional pan of corn bread in there instead of sausage.

With my double smoked sausage and corn bread I also served corn on the cob and baked beans cooked elsewhere. It made for an easy peasy lunch. A tad starchy perhaps, but I grilled again at dinner and had grilled eggplant with orange sauce and also grilled yellow squash to go with a burger. So for the day it balances out.

  1. I love using my Traeger and am definitely giving these a try the next time I fire it up.

  2. Oh I can only blissfully imagine the amazing flavor and aroma of this! How much bacon pieces did you end up adding to the mix?

    • Oops. LOL! I put it six regular slices, cc&c (cooked crisp and crumbled). Always helps to write that in the recipe.

  3. Bacon is a great addition and I love the idea of a slight smokiness from the pellets. I don’t have a Traeger, but we do cook over coals always and occasionally add a pierced packet of foil with wet wood to the mix. I’m going to try this on my Weber!

    • It should be fine done offset. Just have to check the temp or adjust by eyeballing it.
