I have fallen in love with using my  Pit Boss Pro 1100 as more of a convection oven. Soups and stews are always my favorite dinner in the fall and winter months, but the smoker gives the bonus of smoke flavor and slow-cooked tenderness. Now, smoking foods is nothing new, but I have fallen in love with using my Pit Boss Pro 1100 as more of a convection oven. I smoked this on Pit Boss Pro 1100 from Lowes; if you don’t have Lowes, Walmart and Amazon carry other Pit Boss options or the Pit Boss website.

How To Make Smoked Beef Stew On A Pitboss Pellet Grill:

The night before making your stew, put your stew meat in a container, cover with olive oil, and season it with your Montreal, Johnny’s Seasoning Salt, and Garlic Salt.

Store in the fridge overnight, the salt will help to tenderize the meat as well as flavor it.

Start by chopping your veggies to put in the stew.   I started with an amount but had room for more potatoes in the dutch oven, so don’t put everything away.

If you use a preseasoned cast iron Dutch oven, wipe it down with oil to help make sure that it is ready to cook without having stuff stick. I use an old cast iron Dutch oven the old lady picked up for $5, which has worked amazingly well!

An Enameled Cast Iron would work, but the smoke would stain the enamel of the Dutch oven.  Also, be sure to know How To Season Your Cast Iron. (You can see my post-> here!

I use Better Than Boullion bases for my stews and soups. I used a scoop of beef and a small scoop of vegetable base to make the liquid.  A large Pyrex measuring cup is what I use to microwave my water for the Boullion to dissolve in. I also use this cup to add more water to the stew as it needs it.

I fired up my Pitboss Pro 1100 to 225 with a P setting of 7.  You can use any flavor or pellets to smoke this.

Money and time-saving tips from the old lady. If you order pellets online from Walmart and spend $35, they will drop them off at your door for free!! Their everyday price on pit boss pellets is amazing, plus the expert grill brand has a great price. (see them ->here)

At 9:30 that morning I threw the Dutch Oven on the smoker and allowed it to cook until 345 that afternoon.  

Remove and serve!!!

HOW TO STORE LEFTOVER Beef Smoked STEW

Store in an air-tight container in the fridge for three to five days. If you are freezing your leftover stew, freeze it in an air-tight container for up to ninety days.

Storing leftovers properly requires the right tools! My preferred storage method is if the leftovers can be sealed in a food saver. If not, then an air-tight container or Ziploc bag for the fridge is the way I go. The air-tight container and a freezer Ziploc bag are the next best bet for freezing the leftovers. I also use a food scale to measure portions into serving sizes.

HOW TO REHEAT LEFTOVER Smoked beef STEW
