Cooking Instructions


Traditional Mediterranean Kefta with a Pit Boss twist! Kefta is a deliciously spiced and tender type of Moroccan kebab made using ground beef. In this version, the beef is seasoned with cumin, paprika, onion, Blackened Saskatchewan, and parsley and formed into skewers. Grill them up in just minutes until smoky and tender then serve in a warm pita with your favorite toppings. 

Wood Pellet Recommendation

In order to bring out the desired smoky flavor without overpowering this recipe’s seasonings, we recommend using our Competition Blend Hardwood Pellets.

Note: This recipe uses Pit Boss Grills Blackened Saskatchewan Rub Seasoning.

Note: The FDA recommends to cook ground meat to a minimum internal temperature of 160°F.

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine ground beef, onion, Blackened Saskatchewan, cumin, paprika, cilantro, and parsley. Mix well, then cover and refrigerate for 1 hour to allow the flavors to blend.
  2. Fire up your Pit Boss pellet grill on SMOKE mode and let it run with lid open for 10 minutes then preheat to 425° F. If using a gas or charcoal grill, set it up for medium-high heat.
  3. Prepare kebabs: take small amounts of ground beef kefta and shape into popsicle-size cylinders. Skewer the meat, squeezing it to mold it to the skewer.
  4. Grill kefta 3 to 5 minutes per side, then remove from the grill and serve warm with pitas, tzatziki sauce, and your favorite fresh veggies.
