Adding smoke on a gas grill.

OK, for those of you, like me that like the convenience of a gas grill, but would like that natural smoke flavor here is what I did and it worked GREAT!

I purchased some apple wood chips(for grilling/smoking), soaked them for a couple of hours in water. I then partially wrapped them foil, leaving the top open. I laid them over the burner, but not in the direct flame. I wanted them to smolder, not flame.

Once the grill got hot, the wood produced a nice smoke without flame. The food was terrific. I cooked a couple of steaks before roasting the pork I was really wanting the smoke for. Very simple, effective method for adding that smoke flavor.

Yep, that's basically what I do.
Except I don't soak the chips, they work just fine dry. And after I wrap them in foil, I poke a few knife holes in the foil. Set it on the heat deflector and you're good to go.

Yup,
Aluminum foil packet of chips poked with holes layed on the heat deflector works great,

A few years ago I decided to add pecan chips to chicken on a charcoal grill. You can't believe the fantastic flavor pecan gives chicken. Lately, I've been reading a lot about using pecan on chicken especially on charcoal grills. Heck, I thought I was on to something.
