How to Smoke on Your Weber Charcoal Grill

For many families, summertime means more time outdoors enjoying the backyard and savoring delicious, grilled meals. If you’re planning to make smoked dishes on your grill this season, then watch this video for tips on smoking on your Weber charcoal grill in San Jose.

When using an indirect method to smoke on your grill, it’s best to use wood chunks. However, you can also use wood chips, but allow them to soak for about 30 minutes so that they will smolder instead of fire. Pour your lit charcoal into the char basket or onto the charcoal grate and add more later if needed. Then, fill the pan with water, juice, or beer before putting the cooking grate in place. Now, close the lid and open the vent as you wait for the grill to reach the temperature that you need for your recipe.
