Kamado Joe Smoked & Stuffed Peppers

Recommended Posts

 

Here's a great recipe for stuffed peppers for you to try!  These are quick and easy to put together so give them a try and let me know what you think!
 
Kamado Joe Smoked & Stuffed Peppers
 
Ingredients:
 
4 to 5 bell peppers, topped and seeds removed
1 pound lean ground beef (or ground turkey)
1/2 cup diced onion
1/2 cup diced carrots
1/2 cup diced celery
1/2 cup diced mushrooms
3 cloves finely minced garlic
1 (14.5 ounce) can of diced tomatoes, reserving 1/4 cup of liquid
1 tablespoon tomato paste
3 tablespoons fresh parsley
1 tablespoon fresh thyme
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon of your favorite BBQ rub (optional)
Sriracha sauce (optional)
Cheese for topping (optional)
 
Preheat your grill to 350F and set up for indirect cooking.  
 
Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stuff into your peppers.  (you may do this in advance, cover the peppers, and refrigerate overnight if you wish.)  Place the stuffed peppers in a baking dish and put on the grill.  These should cook for 1 to 1 1/4 hours or until you reach an internal temperature of 160 degrees.  With about 15 minutes to go in the cook, top with shredded cheese.  Remove from the grill, cool for a few minutes, and serve!

Those do look outstanding and as soon as we get some power on and spirits are up around the house, I'll be trying the recipe out. Also, I don't mean to pick but, you seemed a little rushed with this one; maybe it was the music in the background but the video just seemed a little more hurried than your normal, laid back style in previous videos. Nothing wrong with change though, it just struck me as different.

You're looking trimmer and energetic in this one, I haven't watched many of the KJ Cooking videos lately so the change is noticeable to me. Congrats on your success with the fitness and lifestyle changes, it's not easy to do but you're pulling it off!

That's a good one John. While I haven't had stuffed peppers in quite some time, it seemed we always had rice mixed in with the ground beef at our house. Yours looks really great and when I give it a try I think I'll serve it with a side of rice. Nicely done.

You could still put rice in this but I went with the very low carb version :)

These look great. Does the flavour of the peach smoke come through strongly? Can't get peach wood over here so thinking of substituting with a small amount of apple if I try this.

 

It's not 'strong' simply because peach wood doesn't produce a very intense smoke, but it is a great choice for this recipe.  Apple would do well also.

I made these tonight.  We had never had stuffed peppers at our house before, and I really liked them!  I sprinkled shredded cheddar over the top because that is what I had on hand.  

 

I was surprised to see how few calories are in each pepper (I made four), considering how filling this dish is.

      In this video, you will find all of the information necessary to properly unbox and assemble your new Kamado Joe Classic III grill.  I didn't think to make a video for the first one, so thought I would share tips I picked up from doing it a second time around.

      Fired up the KJ for some NY Strip Steaks last night. I'd have to say...best steak I've had, hands down.
       
      Got the steaks from a Stripling's General Store here in town. Seasoned with some Lane's BBQ Brisket rub. Put a block of Hickory in the fire.
       
      1. Got the grill up to around 300º while seasoning.
       

       
      2. First time using my ThermoPro wireless thermometer. It definitely gave me the flexibility of hanging out inside while getting up to temp!
       

       
      3. Got the steaks to 125º and pulled them off and tented with aluminum foil.
       

       
      4. Opened up the vents and aimed to get to 550-600º for the sear.
       

       
      5. "I have made fire!"
       

       
      6. Looking tasty! It smelled so good.
       

       
      7. Plated with some spinach salad and a twice baked potato from Striplings.
       

       
      8. Look at that color!
       

       
      I'd have to say...this is my fourth cook on my KJ since buying it for Father's Day and everything I make on it is amazing. My wife looked at my across the table while eating and said, "I see why you wanted to spend so much money on a grill. This is delicious!"
       
      If only she would have that logic when I try to convince her I want to buy a truck...haha

      Fired up the Kamado Joe today for some baby back ribs. Followed the video @John Setzler posted on YouTube. My rack ended up being a little smaller than the one in the video so I never quite got the bend test, but these were definitely some of the best ribs I have ever had. Pics below!
       
      Baby Back Ribs
      Rub: A custom one made by Lanes BBQ (a local BBQ place located in Bethlehem, GA). On Father's Day our church gave out a custom rub Lane's made to all the dads. It was great!!
      Sauce: Sweet Baby Ray's diluted with some apple juice
      Cook time: 5ish hours
      Smoked with some cherry blocks
       
      1. Put them on the grill around 12:30PM
       

       
      2. ~2 hours into cook
       
       
       
      3. Profile shot (~3 hours)
       

       
      4. Gettin' saucy (~4 hours)
       
       
       
      5. Nice color and glaze. This was right before I took them off.
       

       
      6. Plated w/ roasted broccoli and cauliflower plus roll
       

       
      7. Yessir!
       

       
      8. Fall off the bone!
       

       
      9. Gotta shoutout to one of my favorite breweries and they are located 5 min away: Terrapin Beer!
       

       
      Really enjoyed this cook today. Excited to take the leftovers and make a hash with them in the morning!

      Still fairly new to smoking in general, let alone on the Kamado, but my favorite thing to smoke on the MES was salmon. Despite my best efforts, I never managed to screw it up. Figured with a sale on wild caught Sockeye at Fresh Market, it was a good time to test my luck on the Joe. I started out with the brine recipe here: https://www.smokingmeatforums.com/threads/final-smoked-salmon-with-recipe-instructions-and-qview.91264/
       
      Here's the shot after the brine:

       
      My biggest concern was keeping the temperature low. After some suggestions from some of the guys on here, I found the biggest, lumpiest blocks in the bag and started the fire:

       
      Salmon went on the grill immediately to warm up with it.

       
      This was also my first cook with the MEATER Block, so I got to test that out as well. There was definitely some disparity between the two probes, but I'm going to give them a few more rounds before I write em off. I'm curious what anyone else's experience with these is.


       
      Mandatory. Huge fan of bourbon, and coffee, and stouts. If you haven't had anything from Alltech Brewing, I highly recommend it!

       
      Almost done

       
      And complete.

       
      Graph of the finished cook from the MEATER app. I may have fallen asleep towards the end, there. Notifications weren't super notifying.

       
      I'd definitely call this cook a flying success. If I keep this up I may even sell the MES.
