Smoked Bangers & Mash

Jump to Recipe

Some say don’t mess with the classics – but sometimes it’s totally worth it! I decided to try my hand at Bangers & Mash but add my own spin. I decided to make it in my Traeger and turned up with Smoked Bangers & Mash. The deep delicious Stout beer cooks down into a pan gravy to make an amazing top to this dish.

Smoked Bangers & Mash

You can use Johnsonville Luck O’ the Irish sausage or some regular old Bratwurst to make this dish a winner. The important part is that you want them to be uncooked. If you use a precooked sausage, they will get tough. They will dry out in the time it takes to develop the flavor that you want from this recipe.

Smoked Bangers & Mash

If you don’t have a smoker – that’s okay. You can turn just about every grill into a smoker by adding a grill-safe dish full of wood pellets or wood chunks. Just make sure they are close enough to the flames to smolder and produce enough smoke to add flavor to the meal. I used hickory wood pellets for this particular dish. Mesquite would work too – I would draw the line at fruit-tree woods like cherry or apple though.

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
