Smoking On A Gas BBQ
The Napoleon Stainless Steel Smoker Tube is a fantastic way to infuse that smoky grill flavor into the food you love. Filled with your wood chips, the smoker tube is simply placed on your sear plates over the lit burner. The heat will cause the wood to smolder and the resulting smoke will flavor your favorite foods. Conversely, you can use an envelope of aluminum foil filled with wood chips and placed on the cooking grids over your lit burner. Just remember to poke some holes in that foil to release that sweet sweet smoke.
Now, if you have a Napoleon Prestige™ PRO 665 or 825 Gas Grill, you will have a built-in smoker tube. You can find that with the control knobs on the front panel of the grill. This little tray is perfect for holding wood chips and shavings for smoking, and there's a dedicated burner right underneath. This little smoker tray isn't ideal for super long or large smokes and would need a little extra help with the use of a Stainless Steel Smoker Tube, or a sachet of chips in foil. However, it's perfect for adding that touch of smoke to your grilled meals, roasts, steaks, and the like.
Hey, remember when we talked about using charcoal on your gas grill? Toss some wood chips onto those lit charcoal chunks and you've got yourself a smoker on a gas grill as well. These techniques can be used for cooking that lasts anywhere from half an hour - for that lightly smoked flavor, all the way to hours and hours - like for a whole pork shoulder.
