Grilled Elk Stuffed Peppers

Heath Wood

Have you ever looked at the clock and thought, “oh no, what will I fix for dinner?” When that happens, it is nice to have an easy, quick recipe to fall back on, and this is my go-to recipe when such an instance occurs. It’s easy to get bored with the same meal plans repeatedly, but it’s simple to spice things up by adding wild game to the mix.

Sometimes it’s not always easy to “turn off” the workday when you arrive home, but there is something special that happens when you turn on a Traeger grill. The bustle of the day seems to fade and is replaced with anticipation for the meal about to evolve.
