Skewers on the BBQ with a lot of smoke - How to Turn Your BBQ into a Home Smoker

Did you know that you can transform your regular BBQ into a smoker? With a few simple steps, you can start smoking your own meats and vegetables at home. Follow these steps to get started. 

4 Steps to Start Smoking Food on Your BBQ 

Step 1: Set up your BBQ for indirect heat. This means lighting the charcoal or burners on one side of the grill and cooking on the other side, creating a cooler area for smoking. 

Step 2: Soak wood chips or chunks in water for at least 30 minutes. Drain the chips and place them in a smoker box or directly on the coals. 

Step 3: Place your meat or vegetables on the cool side of the grill, away from the direct heat. Close the lid and adjust the vents to control the temperature and smoke. 

Step 4: Monitor the temperature and add more wood chips, charcoal or increase the temperature as needed. Check your food regularly and use a thermometer to ensure it is cooked to the desired temperature.
