Not sure if I am posting this in the correct area, but here is my question.
We recently purchased one of the larger Vision Grills Kamado Charcoal BBQ's from Canadian Tire. So far we have only tried a bag of product they also sell called Natural Blend grilling, it is a Hardwood Blend of natural charcoal.
I'm sure it would be fine for all kinds of meats, but we are not meat eaters other than fish. For salmon the taste is excellent and corn on the cob was fabulous. We tried halibut but the smoke taste was way too strong. I know it is supposed to give everything a smokey flavor, but we find other vegetables and pizza etc. all have way too strong of a smoke taste. Almost to the point that I get a soar throat from eating it.
Are we doing something wrong, we put in the recommend amount of charcoal and follow the directions.
Or is there a brand or type of charcoal that is better suited to giving a more mild taste for vegetables?
We also have to move the BBQ far away from the house because of the excessive smell that penetrates into the house if we don't. It is quite overwhelming. My husband's hair and clothing also reak of smoke when he is done BBQing. Is that normal for it is smell that strongly?
