Is it worth using my Traeger 650 to cook stuff like baked beans or casseroles? Does it really pick up a smoke flavor? If not, then the oven would be a lot easier.

Have a recipe for baked beans and it calls for it to be covered in foil so I am wondering if it will really pick up any smoke flavors.

Curious what your experience has been?

Yes but, don't cover it. You want the smoke. Do it often. With beans, doesn't hurt to stir once in a while.

I have been Traegerin’ my BBQ Brisket Beans for many years. I use large, disposable foil pans to maximize surface area, pre-sauté the bacon, onions, and jalapeños. I usually put a rack over the pot with some rib or brisket trimmings to render into the beans during the cook. I give it all a stir every half hour or so and pull when everything is heated through.

I do it all the time and stir mine every 15 mins in super smoke mode and then bring temp up to 350, stir every 30 mins. It may not matter I believe it tastes better.
