- 1 spaghetti squash
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
Load the Traeger's hopper with the pellets. This isn't a super long smoke so which kind of pellet you use isn't really an issue. I use a good hardwood or blend.
Set the Traeger to 180F or smoke - you want to give the squash a good dose of smoke before turning up the heat.
Drizzle the cut and seeded spaghetti squash with the olive oil and sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper.
Place the squash into the smoker, cut side facing up. Smoke it at 180-F for about 30 minutes to give it a lovely smoky flavor.
Turn the heat up to 350-F and cook for an additional 50-60 minutes or until it is fork tender and easily shreds into spaghetti strands.
Remove the squash from the smoker and top it how you like it!
Chef Jenn's Tips
- This Traeger spaghetti squash recipe is pretty simple, and lends itself to plenty of flavors. My favorite are garlic and butter, Parmesan and herbs, and if the kids are around, they love it with marinara sauce.
- How to tell your spaghetti squash is cooked? It should be fork tender and it should pull away easily into strands when you pull at it with a fork.
- Spaghetti squash needs a fair bit of salt, so make sure you liberally sprinkle each cut half with about 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
