This dish is the original reason for me purchasing a Traeger Smoker. I’ve always loved Smoked Deep Pit Beef. But I’ve never had the luxury of having the traditional buried pit in my backyard. With my Traeger I can get the same great Smoked Deep Pit Beef you get from the traditional buried pit.
Smoked Deep Pit Beef is very inexpensive and is one of the most flavorful cuts of beef. My family loves when I make Smoked Deep Pit Beef. We use it for tacos, nachos, sandwiches, or as a main dish with some sides. Smoked Deep Pit Beef is an easy crowd-pleaser thats great anytime of the year.
