Hey, I'm hoping someone can give me tips on doing some long period smoking in my gas grill for this weekend.
I've done short term stuff using small store bought chip wrapped in foil and resting on over one of the gas burners. It was ok but didn't last more than an hour per pouch.
I'm doing a pork butt which I'd like to smoke for about 5 hours and was planning on placing charcoal briquettes inside the grill over not lighted burners and need some advice. The other burners would get me to the temperature I want the inside of the grill.
I can do small (1" square x 10" long) wood pieces, or chunks, or whatever but I'm concerned that they might catch fire sitting directly on the coals. Can anyone give me advice on this such as wetting the wood, suspending it off of the coals slightly, etc. Obviously I'd like to limit the amount of times I need to open the cover.
