"As a grill enthusiast, I grill at least a couple times a week. I enjoy trying new recipes and especially new accessories. Mostly because they redefine my cooking style every time I try something new. This time I found out about the Smoker Pipes or also called Smoker Tubes. My brother owns a smoker and I always love the taste of the food he cooks with it, so you can understand that I was thrilled about the idea of adding a smoked taste while using my gas grill. Keep reading for more information about how to use the smoker pipe and why it’s a great asset for your grill.
Smoking is all about flavoring your meat or fish and exposing them with the tasteful smell of smoldering wood. First of all, the Smoker Tube needs to be filled with either wood chips or pellets. If you are using wood chips, it is best to pre-soak them and submerge the Smoker Pipe (with the wood chips inside) in cold water for at least half an hour before usage. Then you put it directly on the grate of your grill and light it while your meat sits there and absorbs all the tasty smoke coming from the tube. Remember to keep the lid closed for the best results.
It’s up to you if you want to give your meat a good smoking before cooking (up to 2 hours depending on the size of meal), which is called cold smoking, or if you simply want to give it a hint of smoke. In this case, just use your Smoker Tube when you’re ready to grill.
The best thing about Smoker Pipes is that they have been designed to work in any grill, gas grills or a charcoal grill; as curious as it sounds it even works with smokers! If you are a fan of smoking but do not own one, this accessory will let you get all the fun and flavor of smoking without a smoker. Smoker Tubes are made from stainless steel for durability. The shape allows for efficient diffusion of smoke. Use a Smoker Tube in your gas or charcoal grill for smoker grill results when you don’t have one. You will not be disappointed.
Here are a couple recipes where the Smoker Tube came in handy for our resident Grill Mistress, the Sultana of Sizzle. Slow Smoked Pulled Pork and Smoked Beef Ribs
