How to use a smoker grill (5 Tips)

The Expert of grilling  claims, “In order to cook food slowly and let it absorb the flavours of the process, smoking involves cooking at lower temperatures for longer periods of time.
In contrast, grilling is often done in a shorter amount of time at significantly higher temperatures, frequently right over the heat.” In order to sum up, he says that a smoker grill is an outdoor cooker that excels at both tasks.

How to use smoker grill simply

In 6 simples steps we can learn how to use smoker grill, here you go!

1. Start your Charcoal Grill

Lighting your charcoal is the first step in using a smoker grill (Moody calls it the best, most versatile fuel for outdoor cooking). Keep an eye on the temperature; when smoking barbecue, low and slow is the key. A temperature of 225-250 degrees is ideal.

2. Add Wood Pieces

Wood chips, which come in a variety of species such as hardwoods and nutwoods, are used to create the smoke flavour. Large chunks of wood are usually preferred over chips because they smoulder more slowly and consistently.

3. Season the meat before grilling

Lewis (On of the Expert) claims, “To allow the dry rub to adhere well, I apply a generous amount of yellow mustard to the outside of the meat. For a good smoky flavour, I use a PK Grill at home and prefer a combination of charcoal and oak wood chips. If I’m smoking pork, I’ll also spray the meat with apple juice to keep it moist during the smoking process.”

4. Add water to the smoke

Add moisture to the smoke and meat to ensure your barbecue absorbs that delicious smoky flavour. This can be accomplished by either placing a metal rack over the coals in the firebox and placing a water pan on the grate, or by spritzing your meat with water or apple juice.

5. Keep stable the grill temperature

Keep the grill temperature stable.
Intakes, dampers, and baffles are all names for grill vents. They are merely openings that let oxygen in and, after combustion, exhaust flow out as smoke, according to Moody. “Intake vents are typically located somewhere low on the grill body and the exhaust vents are typically located somewhere high on the top to allow the heat and smoke to flow out,” he says, going on to explain how to use them to regulate the temperature of your smoker grill.
You can regulate the amount of oxygen that reaches your hot coals and ignites, thereby regulating the size of your fire and the heat it generates inside the grill. This is done by regulating the size of the opening of the intake vents.

The best smoker grill cuts

Lewis claims, “The key to correctly smoke d meat is to use a protein with a high fat content. Since you’re cooking the product for a longer amount of time, the fat helps to lock in moisture and keep the meat from drying out. If you’re new to cooking, I recommend starting with a forgiving cut like pork butt or pork shoulder. These will allow you to become acquainted with the temperature and smoke levels, and it is difficult to overcook them, resulting in a delicious product.”
