How to add smoke flavour with wood pellets on charcoal barbecues

An easy way to add smoke flavour to most outdoor cooker is to use wood pellets in a variety of different methods to produce consistent results every time. Depending on the type of cooking equipment there's great ways to use wood pellets to produce delicious food. From low and slow smoking to hot and fast grilling there are a few different tested methods that I use with great results.

Two main reasons to use wood pellets on charcoal cookers. #1 Cost per use - Recently I was in a big box store looking at wood chips for smoking in the outdoor section and was shocked at the price for a little bag of wood chips at $12. There's not even half a log in there but with no access to a pile of wood, it's the only option for some people to add smoke to the food they want to cook at home. #2 Consist Results - With all the different varieties of wood you never really know what kind of wood you're actually smoking with. Apple trees have over 7,500 different varieties across the world so you could have unpredictable results wasting money on food tasting no good. 

Recently Kingsford came out with a premium line of wood pellets and I had to try them out. I grabbed a bag of the competition blend which is a great mix of 45% Hickory 45% oak and 10% cherry for a perfect blend to add a smoke flavour to all sorts of food. I was using wood pellets before and stopped due to the added oils that I could actually see covering the food I cooked. Some wood pellet manufactures add flavoured oils to the same blend of cheap wood to make their pellets. For more information check out https://kingsfordpellets.com/

Kingsford new premium pellets are made with 100% pure hardwood with zero filler wood, additives or flavoured oils to produce an unmatched smoke flavour with long burn times and almost no ash. Check them out on Amazon or they can be found at Lowes' and Cabela's in the 10-pound bags or online at Amazon that has the 20-pound bags. Here's the link    https://amzn.to/2M9V3os

In this video, I go over several different methods to add a great smokehouse flavour to food in many different cooking setups on a variety of charcoal cookers. Low and smoking to hot and fast grilling on a kettle barbecue to setting up drum, bullet, kamado style cookers to produce great food every time. Another neat tool to add a great smoke flavour to any cooker is the A-Maze-Smoker which I show how to set up and use as well.
