Traeger BBQ Bacon Green Beans are an incredible side dish!
Smoky flavor, the BBQ seasoning makes them a little unique, and everything is just better with bacon in my opinion.
A complete meal that I served to our wonderful friends and everyone highly approved.
How to Make Traeger BBQ Bacon Green Beans
First, cut a few slices of bacon into a skillet over medium heat.
Cook the bacon for a few minutes and remove them to drain on paper towels.
While the bacon cooked, I diced an onion and trimmed the ends off two pounds of fresh green beans.
Then cut them in half, or some of the longer beans I cut into thirds.
I made these green beans in my cast iron skillet, the same skillet I cooked the bacon in (I did remove the bacon grease).
You could also make them in a foil pan for even easier cleanup.
Just put the green beans, onions, garlic, a little water, cooked bacon crumbles, and stick of butter cut into smaller pieces right into the pan.
Then season with your favorite BBQ seasoning, kosher salt, and pepper.
No need to stir just yet.
Place the pan onto the smoker or pellet grill set to 250 degrees.
They will take 2 1/2 to 3 hours total, stirring them a few times throughout.
