Preparation

Heat olive oil in a medium Dutch oven over medium-high heat until simmering. Add onions and cook until softened and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add ground beef and cook until browned.

Add garlic, chili powder, oregano, allspice and cloves until fragrant. Add tomato paste and cook until the color has changed to a rusty orange.

Stir in broth, tomato sauce, vinegar, brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper.

When ready to cook, Set the Traeger to 350℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.

Cover the Dutch oven and transfer to the grill. Cook for 40 minutes or until the mixture is bubbling and has thickened.

While the chili cooks, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add spaghetti and cook until al dente. Strain and reserve.

To serve, top spaghetti noodles with chili and garnish with kidney beans, chopped onion and shredded cheese. Enjoy!
