Don’t Just Grill, SMOKE IT ALL This Summer

Now Smoking Is As Easy As Opening a Package of Smoke It All

I’m not a professional griller.  I’ve used my Weber strictly for grilling burgers and chicken, as well as roasting veggies and the occasional turkey. When I was asked for my take on smoking, I decided it was time to explore that food enhancement with my grill.

Instead of using pre-soaked wood chips on hot coals for my first foray into smoking, I chose SMOKE IT ALL,  a pre-packaged smoking product from a company in Denmark that promised easy smoking for gas or charcoal grilling. I may not be a pro griller, but there is something about using a charcoal grill, that makes me feel less of an amateur.  I personally believe charcoal cooking grills up better-tasting food, as well.

I’ve learned that charcoal creates radiant heat, so food cooks a bit quicker; gas heat, on the other hand, gives off a water vapor and that diminishes the heat’s intensity.

SMOKE IT ALL has several smoking dust blends to choose from, all of them using Kiln-dried beechwood combined with a variety of spices. That sounded particularly uncomplicated to me. I started with the “Seaside” blend which included Allspice, Coriander, Mustard Seed, Onion, Pepper, Thyme, Tomato, and Paprika.

Directions Are Simple

I prepared medium hot coals for indirect heat and piled them to one side of the grill.  Next, I placed the SMOKE IT ALL tin tray with the smoking ingredients right on top of the coals—but only after I removed the sleeve and the film from the tin tray.

Then I placed the top rack on the grill, and oiled it using tongs with wadded paper towel, wet with a little oil – I find that keeps food from sticking.

When the tray began to smoke, I put a piece of salmon on the grill rack, above some coals but not directly above the smoking tray. Covered all, and kept the vents about a quarter open. Smoke began pouring out, and I must say, the aroma was heavenly.

I turned the salmon after 10 minutes and removed it from the grill 10 minutes later. It was perfect for me. I could taste the smokiness—but it wasn’t overpowering.

Tried different grilling times, different smoking dust blends, with other foods—veggies in a tray, sausage, even corn. Each attempt delivered slightly different tastes with just enough smoking flavor.  I don’t know if I would attempt foods requiring much longer cooking times with these 20-minute smoking trays, but for barbecuing seafood, hamburgers, chicken and more, SMOKE IT ALL does a wonderful job, easily and quickly when the mood calls for something smokey.

Follow package instructions to remove the tray with tongs.

Other flavors include kiln-dried beechwood with a variety of spices for smoking pork, beef, poultry, lamb and game.
