Tailgater Shredded Beef Tacos, friends of ours are going to the “big game”. They love football and their perfect to go grill for tailgating and camp cooking is the Green Mountain Grill Davy Crockett. It smokes and grills great and the handles become the legs. Being Ken made his awesome 16lb. chuck roast they wanted instructions to make simple tacos that the whole family would love. So, we used a few pounds and some of our cold smoked cheese to experiment with tacos. So easy.

Patti and I have set one night a week just for us. It’s our date night. We usually put something special on our Green Mountain Wood Pellet Grill/Smoker but sometimes we cook inside. We always eat outside on our patio where it is very comfortable with a rainforest theme. Wood pellet patio heater, little lights, candles, lanterns and surround sound. We enjoy a little wine, or strawberry margaritas using frozen strawberries for ice, good food, music and sometimes a dance or two…

Directions: Tailgater Shredded Beef Tacos

In large freezer bag marinate beef with garlic, seasoning and marinade for a few hours or overnight. You need to put these together when you’re ready to put them on the grill or they might get soggy.

In an oven safe pan spray with a cooking spray to help with clean up. Line your pan with folded tortillas; we used a 9 x 13 pan so we went 4 across. Fill your tacos with meat and cover with cheese. Now, you’re ready for the grill for about 15 minutes at 300 degrees (150c). When the tacos start to crisp up and the cheese is melted it’s time to pull them off the grill. Remember you are just reheating the beef and melting the cheese. Top them off with your favorite toppings to taste and serve on paper towels or plates because you are tailgating…

Note: I get a lot of questions about the kind of pellets you can use with a recipe. Keep in mind that a recipe is just an outline. Some you need to follow closely like when you are making bread, but most you can do anything you can dream, our favorite way to cook. Feel free to mix and match the pellets until you find a combination you really like. Also you are only smoking at temps less than 250 degrees (122c), anything higher is cooking and there will not be much if any smoke so it does not matter what kind of pellet you are using.

Cooking In the Oven:

We have been getting requests for recipe conversions for the Pacific Living Outdoor Oven. I tell folks all the time that cooking on a Wood Pellet Grill/Smoker is just as easy as cooking in your oven. Just about anyone can do it and do it well. Think about it. You set your control knob to the temp you want, put your meat in and leave it for a set time.

It is the same thing, time and temperature is what it is all about. The Green Mountain grill is just like your oven except it uses wood pellets and has wheels.

I do 15 minutes here at 300 (150c).

Note: The Pacific Living Outdoor Oven also has a smoke box.

About our Recipes

We do our recipes on our patio where we have a lineup of grills, including Louisiana, Green Mountain, Royall, Memphis, Traeger pellet grills, Char Griller side box smoker, Saber, Charmglow, Char-Broil, The Big Easy, Pacific Living Outdoor Oven, Lodge Sportsman’s, Brinkman and Weber. I call it our “Wall of Grill”. Our grilling styles are healthy and low fat and will fit pelletheads, gas, natural wood and even charcoal purists. Almost any of our recipes can be done on any kind of good BBQ.

The important thing to keep in mind is TIME & TEMPERATURE. You can even do some of them in the oven or crock pot, but, then you lose all the flavors you get from cooking outdoors. But sometimes it does rain.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to suit your taste. Take it and run with it….
