How to Use a Gas Grill to Smoke

Adding smoke to your gas grill is easy with some helpful tools from Ace.  I have picked 3 of my favorite smoke tools for you to choose from.  I use them all in our cooking projects and have found some great flavor by adding smoke before and during the cooking process.  Give these tips a try, then craft your own smoke plan and have fun.

Smoking Directions:

Preparation Tips:

  • Choose your preferred smoker product
  • The AMAZEN tubes come in 2, 4 & 6 hour size
  • Pick a stronger wood that will impart heavier flavor in a short amount of time (if desired)
  • The Weber smoker box can use wood chips, small chunks or even wood pellets as the smoke source
  • The Grill Mark smoker box can use wood chips, small chunks or even wood pellets as the smoke source
  • CHEF TIP – if doing a low and slow smoke project adjust the burners to maintain the desired heat and use opposite burners to create that indirect heat.  Be sure to place the smoker box or tube over the heat source.
  • For low and slow smoke projects, you may have to reload the smoker boxes or tube
