How To Create A Smoker From Your Charcoal Grill


 Instructions For Creating A Smoker

Follow the instructions in this video to learn how to create a smoker from your charcoal grill. This is an excellent way to create your own smoker without having to purchase an expensive smoker. While having your own smoker will likely do a better job of smoking your food than using a charcoal grill smoker, this is a great way to test out smoking your own food. Creating a smoker from your charcoal grill is a great way to test out smoking your own meat and learn how to do it properly. In this video we smoked a variety of different types of meat using applewood. Applewood is a great wood for smoking because it gives your food some added flavor. If you use applewood chips for smoking, then make sure to soak them in water for a good half hour before using them on your charcoal smoker. This will make them last longer and provide more smoke than if you used dry Applewood chips for smoking. When creating your smoker on a charcoal grill, you want to leave the vents on the opposite side open. This is demonstrated in the video. Leaving your vents open on the opposite side will create air flow and draw the smoke over the meat. We smoked this meat for about 2.5 hours before finishing the meat with some hot and fast grilling.  

Food Presentation Is Everything!

Presentation is everything! This is what our food looked like before we ate. Not a single piece of smoked meat was left over :) Once you master the art of smoking meat, you should also experiment with other types of grilling. Grilling with herbs is another great way to add unique flavors to your food. Do you smoke your own meat? What has your experience been with using smokers vs. using a charcoal grill to smoke meat?
