  • smoker
  • pan


  • 16 Ounces Sourdough Pretzel Bites 1 bag or equivalent
  • 2 Ounces Taco Seasoning
  • 1 Stick Unsalted Butter ½ cup


  • 1 lb Butter Snap Pretzels or equivalent
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon granulated garlic

Mustard Pretzels

  • 1 lb butter snap pretzels or equivalent
  • 3 tablespoon dijon mustard or your favorite mustard
  • 1 oz dried mustard


  • Preheat your pellet smoker to 250 degrees.
  • Place the butter in a large, microwave-safe mixing bowl and heat it for 1 minute or until fully melted.
  • Add your pretzels to the bowl, and gently fold them until the butter has coated all of them.
  • Sprinkle the taco seasoning over the top of the pretzels and fold them gently again, until fully coated. Allow to sit until the smoker is ready.
  • Spread the pretzels on an average sized baking sheet and place in your smoker for 30 minutes.
  • Remove, let cool for a couple of minutes, and enjoy!
  • Follow the steps above and adjust seasonings for each recipe.


If you would like a lighter taco flavor, adjust your taco seasoning down to 1 ounce instead of 2.
2 Ounces of taco seasoning equals two packets.
I haven’t tried homemade taco seasoning mix with this recipe yet. Homemade taco seasoning tends to be stronger, so you may want to test it out on the lower end first.
It’s best to use a fruit flavored pellet for this recipe. Pretzels are porous and tend to soak up a lot of the smoky flavors. Fruity woods are lighter on the flavor and seem to work best. However, if you like a strong smoky flavor, go for something like hickory.
I highly recommend using name brand pellets as they tend to have the best flavor outcome. I used Traeger cherry pellets for this recipe and it was perfect.
You can also bake these pretzels in the oven at 250 degrees for the same amount of time. However, they will not have a smoky flavor like they would from the smoker.
You can swap out the dijon for any mustard you have on hand.
If you have a smaller baking sheet so that your pretzels are piled on top of each other, increase the smoke time by 10 minutes. They will still cook just fine like this, so no worries.
