What type of smoker do I use?

We use two Traeger wood-pellet grills for our grilling and smoking. You can use whatever brand you’d like to make these recipes, just adjust according to the manufacturer directions of your particular brand and model. 

What’s the difference between smoking and grilling?

It seems obvious, but it is not JUST the smoke. That is the main element, of course. You can’t smoke without it (get that liquid smoke away from me please and thank you), but there are some clever workarounds that let you smoke on a grill that is NOT technically a smoker. 

The other difference is temperature. Typically when you smoke something you are doing so for relatively long periods of time at lower temperatures.

  • Subbing in a different brand of rub? LIVE YOUR LIFE. 
  • Red wine vinegar for apple cider vinegar? Mayyyyybe, but you’re starting to find the line.
