Hey everyone. I recently just purchased a new BBQ, Char-Broil® Classic 4-Burner Gas Grill @ Target (i know...) and i wanted to cook up some burgers and dogs this weekend and i would like to use a smoke box. i have been looking into some of the ones @ amazon:
and i guess all i have to do is place the box with chips on top of the grill grates and start cooking.
i have never used other smoke methods before, like the pellets. what is the benefit, if any, form wood chips and pellets? and could i use pellets for this type of gas grill, for what i want to do...just smoke while i am cooking burgers or ribs? i dont really want to smoke meat for hours, just want to have a nice hickory flavor, produced quickly if possible on some burgers and hot dogs, maybe even ribs.
i appreciate your input and help. thank you
