Blackened Cheez Its - No anchovies (The best, easiest party snack)

This party food is the easiest snack you'll ever make, and probably the most popular. The recipe couldn't be simpler and requires only 4 ingredients. We've adapted Traeger's original recipe to be anchovy-free, but still 100% delicious.


  • 1 - family size box of Cheez Its (21 oz)
  • 2 - Tbsp Blackened Saskatchewan Rub
  • 4 - Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 4 - Tbsp Maggi seasoning (use Worcestershire if you're not serving anyone with a fish allergy)


  1. Preheat your smoker to 225 degrees fahrenheit using your favorite pellets. 
  2. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  3. In a small bowl, stir together butter, Maggi seasoning and Blackened Saskatchewan Rub.
  4. Dump Cheez Its into a large bowl, pour butter mixture over top and stir well to coat all the crackers. Dump onto the baking sheets and spread out so there's one layer of crackers.
  5. Place baking sheets in the Traeger for an hour, remove and let cool. Enjoy immediately, or store in an air-tight container for a few days.
