Let’s start this out with we love about anything cooked on any type of grill. There is something to be said about having your meal cooked over an open flame no matter if you’re using a gas grill, charcoal grill, or a wood fired smoker. With that stated, we had a customer come into our BBQ Grill showroom the other day and ask us what type of grill they should purchase. We told them that it really depended on what they valued more, convenience and good flavor or patience and fantastic flavor. Now don’t get us wrong, you can have some delicious meals prepared on a gas grill, that is for sure and you just can’t beat the convenience. All you have to do is turn the gas on, light the flames, and you’re, pardon the expression “Cooking with Gas” within minutes. But oh….what a difference it makes when you cook that same meal over a smoker.
There is nothing quite like the taste of dinner when it has been slow cooked with low temperature for several hours over a smoldering wood, charcoal, or pellet fire. There is that magic which happens when the meat has time to absorb that delicious smoke and create that smoked taste that we all love. Let’s break it down this way…..when you go to a BBQ competition, what types of grills do you see everyone using? Gas or a Smoker? Yep, you guessed it, a smoker. There is something to be said about that. Sure, is that meal a labor of love? Is it something you have to invest some time in? Is it worth it? The answers to these questions are yes, Yes, and YES!!!
Now what experienced grill masters have learned during their years of cooking, is how to keep the perfect temperature over time, using the right marinades, and of course using the right fuel (charcoal, pellet, wood chunks) for that perfect smoky flavor each and every time. Many new to grilling their food on a smoker may think that getting that flavor is just too time consuming and not worth all of the work. What do they say? Necessity is the Mother of Invention, right? These days you no longer have to check your smoker over and over again to see if it’s keeping the right temperature. There are remote thermometers you can use to ensure you’re keeping the temperature in tolerance. If that doesn’t work for you, we’d suggest you purchase a pellet grill which uses compressed flavored wood pellets, a hopper, and an auger which feeds the fire when the temperature drops below what it’s been programmed to be. WOW, who doesn’t just love technology? We won’t say that it is effortless, but we can say that it makes it a whole lot easier.
