We’ve reviewed the numbers and are pleased to introduce the best recipes of 2018!
These are the recipes that garnered the most views and hopefully, were cooked in your household. Vegetable recipes by far dominated this listed.
Without further delay, here are the top 6 recipes starting with number six.
#6 Smoked Carrot-Almond-Ricotta Cake
This recipe was completed on the gas grill using wood chunks for great smoky flavor to shredded fresh carrots. By using a griddle insert on my grill, I prevent overcooking and dehydration to the carrot, since this is a main component to our cake.

#5 Charred Corn on the Cob
It’s clear that corn is one of the most popular vegetables to put on the grill or smoker. Our recipe featured whole corn on the cob done direct cooking on the gas grill with wood chunks placed directly on the heat shields for the perfect char flavor.

#4 Avocado-Chocolate Pudding
We always strive in the Test Kitchen to bring recipes that meet a variety of dietary needs. For the dairy-free follower, we made the perfect dessert featuring creamy avocado and rich chocolate for the perfect pudding.
Just follow our simple recipe that includes grilling halved avocado on the grill with wood
#3 Cheesy Potato Bake
Our 3rd recipe of the top 6 overall features one of my favorite vegetables: potato. This time, we took our pan of lusciousness directly to the bullet smoker for a long infusion of flavor.
#2 Ember-Fired Fresh Zucchini
One of the things we try to do in our recipe offerings is to give a variety of options on technique. Our fresh zucchini recipe was one such offering as we took this vegetable to the hot embers to tenderize and char. This is one great way to use the entire wood fire before it reduces to cold ash.
#1 Wood-Fired Guacamole
The top recipe of 2018 was our wood-fired guacamole! Given the popularity of avocado as well as dips in general for easy entertaining, this is one special guacamole. The wood fired flavor works so well whether you serve this with chips or use it as a condiment to top a burger or chicken sandwich. With versatility to add special flavor to any meal, it’s no wonder wood-fired guacamole is our number one recipe for 2018!
