What's the Difference Between a Smoker and a Grill?
Smokers use smoke to cook the food. They can be heated using charcoal, wood, gas or electricity. Smokers will have water and wood basins at the bottom of the chamber. Wood chips produce the smoke that provides the smoky flavor. The water will help to keep the temperature of the smoker stable. On the other hand, grills offer more flexibility and can be powered by electricity, propane, natural gas and charcoal. They allow you to use direct heat by placing the food on grates over an open flame or indirect heat for slow cooking. The temperature of grills and smokers differ greatly. The internal temps of a smoker can range between 160ºF to 300ºF while a grill can be higher than 400ºF. The time it takes to cook your food also differ from these appliances. Since smokers rely on smoke to infuse the flavor into meats, they take much longer in comparison to the direct heat from a grill. When it comes to flavor, smokers offer a more authentic barbecue taste. Depending on the grill, the flavor may not be as intense unless charcoal and wood chips are used.

How to Add Wood Chips to an Electric Smoker
