Wood chips on gas grill?

How do you add wood chips (for smoke) to a gas grill?

Go to your local hardware store and go to the grill section. They will sell a small cast iron box with slits in the lid. You put your soaked wood chips (which you can buy in that section of the store too) in the box and put the box under your grates right on the fire.

The box should cost around $10.

I have put my soaked chips or chunks in a foil pouch with holes poked in the top.

I've really cheated and put several drops of Liquid Smoke added to some water in a foil tray and set that over the fire with my ribs on the other side of the grill. Tastes smoked to me

I cheated too, tonight I was grilling ribs, there was some grease that caught on fire when a piece of rib fell. I turned up the heat and covered.....smokey as all ****...

But if youre seriously looking for the wood chip taste, I agree with the water soaked hikory chips, in foil if youre looking for a quick fix, my friends dad did this religiously.

A tip...
Set the foil pouch or the smoking box on the grill briquets
if they don't smoke well on the cooking grids!
