One Simple Super Trick to Turn Your Grill Into a Top-Notch Smoker
Last weekend I grilled in a public park for a friend’s birthday and my buddy remembered all of the necessary ingredients… except for the grill. Someone dashed out to pick up a cheap grill from Target ($16!) and I began scouring the internet for cool ways to good meat on a cheap grill. And that’s how I learned about the Snake Method…
The Snake Method is one of the more recent innovations in the world of barbecue and one that’s just now hitting the mainstream. It’s a trick for turning your average circular charcoal grill into a quality smoker, for that falling-off-the-bone texture and smokey flavor of choice. By creating a semi-circle of briquettes topped with some flavoring wood of choice, you’ll be able to create a slow burn that can cover all of your smoke-inducing needs.
Admittedly, I wasn’t able to pivot into a half-day of smoking meat with the Target grill (I stuck with hamburgers and hot dogs), but it sure got me thinking for next time.
