Tips & Tricks

  • This recipe was smoked on a Traeger pellet smoker. However, you can follow this exact recipe using the oven or an offset smoker as well. No changes are needed.
  • You can also use turkey or vegetable broth in place of the chicken broth, as all three add an excellent flavor profile.
  • It’s important to stir the stuffing mixture gently. You don’t want to beat up the bread pieces once they get wet. Be gentle with your folding, and the result will be a gorgeous finish.
  • You don’t need to use sourdough. Any dried bread cubes will work. It’s important to note that some bread types are a little more porous than sourdough, so start by adding only half of the broth and add a bit more at a time until the right consistency is reached.
  • I used oak for this specific recipe, which turned out amazing. Pecan and hickory would also be a fabulous choice.

FAQs about Smoked Stuffing

Any hearty bread that can stand up to the smokiness and moisture without turning to mush is perfect. Think sourdough, ciabatta, or even a robust whole wheat. The key is to let it dry out a bit so it soaks up all those delicious flavors!

This depends on how long you smoke it and the type of wood pellets you use. For a subtler smoke flavor, go with apple or cherry wood. If you're all about that bold, smoky vibe, hickory or mesquite will be your best friends.

A little bit of chicken or vegetable broth can go a long way. Pour it over the stuffing before it goes into the smoker, and cover the dish with foil to keep all that moisture locked in.

Yes, indeed! You can prepare the stuffing a day ahead, keep it refrigerated, and then pop it into the smoker when ready. Just remember, the final smoke will bring all those flavors together beautifully.

You sure can! Sausage, bacon, or even diced smoked ham can add a lovely depth of flavor. Just cook it before mixing it into your stuffing to ensure everything comes out perfectly.

For an extra touch of pizzazz, consider adding some crispy bacon or toasted pecans.

Trust me, this dish will be the star of your table! Enjoy!

Note: If you want to make your own dried bread cubes, simply take a 24-ounce loaf of sourdough bread and cut it into about ¾-inch cubes. Spread them on a pan without overlapping them, and bake for 45 minutes at 300 degrees Fahrenheit. You can use them immediately for your stuffing!
