Spending as much time outside as you can is the summer’s primary goal, and cooking delicious dishes on a fire pit is one way to accomplish this. It is, however, challenging to come up with new dish ideas to cook in a smokeless fire pit. This innovative fire pit is enlightening the pleasure centres of outdoor enthusiasts everywhere. This season, we’ve compiled a list of delicious and new smokeless fire pit dishes for you to try. 

Jalapeño Poppers 

Burgers, steaks, and ribs are traditional backyard cookout fare on a smokeless fire pit insert, but what about an over-the-fire appetizer? We added this spicy recipe to the list to give your night around the fire a kick. This jalapeno popper recipe is simple and ideal for prepping ahead of time and tossing on the Outpost grill as guests arrive. Have fun grilling and entertaining while gathered around the fire.  

Jalapeno poppers, also known as jalapeno bites, are hollowed-out jalapeno peppers stuffed with cheese, spices, and sometimes ground meat, then breaded and deep-fried. While this recipe is great for spicy food enthusiasts, it may also be suitable for those who do not enjoy spicy foods. Make sure to remove all of the seeds, which are the primary source of the spice, and cook your peppers until they’re soft. 

Kalbi (Korean BBQ Short Ribs) 

If you want to try new dishes, give Korean-style short ribs a shot. Kalbi is a staple of fine Korean dining but costly in restaurants. It’s also easy to make at home and will leave your guests wanting more. The total time includes the time spent marinating. This recipe is a fun revamp of the traditional savory steak or chicken. This is a unique take on ribs that you do not want to miss out on, with flavors like brown sugar, garlic, and soy sauce.

Grilled Ramps 

Ramps are a cook’s gems. They are a sign of the bounty to come in the spring, a reminder of the end of winter and the new growth that is taking place in the rich soils. Ramps can be prepared in various ways, but when grilled, the sharp garlicky bite softens and complements the smoky flavor of the grill. Grilled ramps are simply delicious and the perfect introduction to their unique onion flavor. Pair grilled ramps with your favorite grilled fish, meat, or vegetables for a memorable spring BBQ feast, and serve with potato salad. 

Burgers 

We’re going back to basics, grilling burgers, steaks, vegetables, and more over an open fire. We understand that being the first cook can be intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. Burgers are an excellent first cook over an open flame. They cook best over high, direct heat. This means you won’t have to make numerous changes to how your fire is lit to make an excellent burger. It all comes down to making sure your burgers get enough heat, that you move them around and flip them to ensure even cooking, and that you don’t let them burn.

Pastrami 

Every March, we all seem to recall how much we like pastrami. But why limit this delicacy to just one season? Most likely because the procedure takes several days. However, a shortcut exists. More minor, more tender cuts of meat, such as flank steak, pork loin, or even chicken wings, only take 1-2 days to cure and can be cooked hot and fast on the fire pit.   

This dish made a list because cooking it in a fire pit benefits food preservation as meat smokes at a low temperature, the inside cooks while the outside forms a bacteria barrier. Pastrami is a must-try dish because of its unique flavors.   

Picanha And Flanken Short Rib Tacos 

Multiple things can be cooked in a fire pit. This is why it is an ideal dish to prepare on it. A Picanha steak is a delectable cut of meat available. It is cut from the top of the rump, near the sirloin. It’s a joy to cook because it’s so flavorful. On the other hand, Chimichurri adds an amazingly bright, herbaceous note to meat, and tortillas are fun. Serve with sour cream, plain yogurt, tomatoes, lettuce, or whatever your stomach desires. The traditional way to serve it, however, is with cilantro and onion, with the addition of creamy avocado, which tastes fantastic with the smokey spice of the peppers. 

Conclusion  

Cooking in a smokeless fire pit gives us the feel of adventure. It does not irritate those around it with smoke and is relatively simple. However, you might be unable to come up with new dishes to cook on a smokeless fire. The list above should help you enjoy cooking in a fire pit with many unique flavors to try.
