When using woodchips for smoking, it’s important to soak them in water for at least 30 minutes before using them. This helps to prevent the wood from burning too quickly and also helps to create more smoke. The food being smoked should be placed on the grill grates above the wood chips, with the lid closed to trap the smoke inside. The temperature of the grill should be kept low, around 105-120°C, to allow the food to smoke and cook slowly.
It is also important to know that some woods are toxic and should be avoided when smoking. Woods such as pine, cedar, redwood, and others should not be used as they contain resins and oils that can be toxic when inhaled.
