Adding smoke to a pellet drive

Post by Gizmo » July 7th, 2012, 4:33 pm

I've never thought a pellet drive put the amount of smoke in the meat that a charcoal/wood fire did.
So I added some.

A diffuser plate/hot plate directly above the firepot with a handle to hold a tinfoil pack of wood chips.

You can kinda see the smoke coming out in this pic - the pellet drive is in high burn so this smoke is being added to what the pellets normally do... and a fresh wood pack ready to add when this one is gone.

Image

Don't let anybody tell you that corelle won't break when you drop it on concrete.

Image

I had to make a quick choice when the plate and the rack of ribs slipped out of my hand - well to hell with the plate!

Image

You can kinda see the smoke penetration below the bark in this shot - tasted great!

Looks great Rick! Did you use pellets in the foil pack or wood chips?

Thanks guys!
I used regular wood chips - had some left from a bag I had from the store - nothing special... :D

I would have sacrificed the plate too!


BBQ is just smoke and beers!
Usually more beers than smoke.
