Valentine’s Day or Date Night Recipe Ideas
My Favorite Smoked Side – Smoked Hasselback Potatoes
Smoked Entrees for Date Night
There are a lot of things you can make as the main entree, but I want to make sure I give you a few different options based on how much time you have, and how comfortable you are with your smoker.
Skirt Steak Skewers
This first recipe is perfect for someone that is short on time, or just wants something simple that is still super tasty. Skirt Steak Skewers are one of my family’s favorite smoked entrees. They’re easy to make on a weeknight, and everyone loves them!
Reverse Seared Steak
Flank Steak Pinwheels
The first time I made these was after my wife and I went on what we described as the best date we’ve ever gone on. Flank Steak Pinwheels are easy to make, and they are super tasty. I especially love how all the flavors compliment one another.
Smoked Beef Wellington
Most of the recipes on this list are pretty damn easy to make. This one, not so much. You don’t have to be a world class chef to get it right, but you do need some patience and time. If you think she might be the one, make this Smoked Beef Wellington recipe. It’s the best-tasting thing I’ve ever made on my smoker.
There are quite a few other great recipes you could make as the main entree for date night, but you can’t go wrong with the recipes I mentioned above.

Smoked Chocolate Chip Cookies
Don’t want a whole cake? Ok. I guess I get it. Make smoked chocolate chip cookies instead. These are the best cookies I’ve ever made, and I’m sure they’ll be close to some of the best you’ve ever had too.
