You kind of lost me there....
I thought the item you are smoking cooked from the heat of the burner(s) rising up through the wood chips and distributing throughout the enclosed area. I see now you have the other burner lit that doesn't have any chips above it, but obviously adds indirect heat.
So you're saying that smoking meat, fish, whatever... doesn't really cook the food?
When I do ribs I set them over the two UNLIT burners in the center, have the two outside burners lit and cook them indirectly.
If I was to add smoke packets over the two outside burners I'll assume that be considered smoking them.... Would that not also be cooking them?
Is it only a terminology thing I'm missing here?
