Preparation

When ready to cook start the Traeger according to grill instructions. Set the temperature to 350 degrees F and preheat, lid closed 10-15 minutes.

For the Burnt Orange Agave Syrup: Cut orange in half and brush cut side with agave. Place cut side down directly on the grill grate and grill for 15 minutes or until grill marks develop.

While the orange halves are grilling, slice the other orange and brush both sides of the slices with agave. Place slices directly on the grill grate next to the halves and cook for 15 minutes or until grill marks develop.

Remove orange halves from grill grate and let cool. After they have cooler, juice halves and strain. Set aside.

Combine water and agave in a shallow dish and mix well. Remove orange slices from the grill and place in the agave mixture reserving a few for garnish.

Reduce the temperature on the grill to 180 degrees F and place the shallow dish with agave and oranges directly on the grill grate. Smoke for 40 minutes. Remove from heat and strain. Set aside.

To Mix Drink: Rim glass with Jacobsen Smoked Salt. Combine tequila, fresh lime juice, grilled orange juice and burnt orange agave syrup in a glass. Add ice and shake well.

Strain into a rimmed glass over clean ice. Garnish with a grilled orange slice. Enjoy!
