Smoking using wood pellets in a metal smoke box for low and slow? Best Technique ? Your tips and tricks

Post by L2obin » Mon Mar 04, 2019 4:10 am

How does one smoke using smoking pellets on low and slow?

I initially tried throwing pellets into the coals, but they burn too fast.

I then tried wrapping them in alu foil and throwing them on the coals.. result was better, but again they burn too fast..

I subsequently purchased a smoking box (small metal one) and filled it with pellets and threw it on the coals.. yep they burned too fast...

Now I am thinking maybe I should place the pellets within the smoking box on the grill itself or the heat deflector (using a Kamado)?

Perhaps I am doing all this wrong...

How can I get a low sustained smoke burn from pellets?
