7 Grilling and Smoking Recipes for November
Kids and adults alike love this sweet cousin of Yorkshire pudding, which puffs dramatically when exposed to the heat of the grill. It relies on pantry ingredients—eggs, flour, sugar, and milk—and can be finished with a simple dusting of powdered sugar or even mixed berries. It’s perfect for overnight guests.
Though often served as a fall dessert, baked apples take on a savory persona when stuffed with sausage and one of our favorite autumn herbs, sage. Wood smoke brings out the best in these apples. Serve them with pork, roast chicken, or even for a holiday brunch.
One of our most popular recipes, you can serve these maple syrup-coated bacon-wrapped onions as a starter or side dish. They’re positively addictive. Great with burgers, too.
Whether you serve it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, this sensational meatloaf always impresses the carnivores at your table. Never made a bacon weave before? Our easy-to-follow directions will ensure success.
A sophisticated compound butter made with cognac and fresh herbs as well as the complex flavor of wood smoke takes this Thanksgiving-worthy bird over the top. Plus, you’ll take pressure off the kitchen when you roast the turkey outside.
This could be one of the easiest meals you’ll make during the coming holiday season. And it’s fancy enough to step in for turkey if you’re expecting a smaller group for Thanksgiving. We love it with the mushroom bread pudding below.
While we love this rich bready pudding with an array of wild mushrooms, common button mushrooms or creminis can be used, too.

It’s substantial enough to please any vegetarians in your circle–and much tastier than faux turkey
