If you’re not interested in buying a full smoker but still want that delicious smoky flavor, a BBQ smoker box is an affordable way to get a similar effect. Simply fill the smoker box with wood chips and put it on the grill, either beside your meat or on a lower grate. Smoker boxes are typically made of stainless steel for durability and easy cleaning, though cast iron boxes tend to be tougher. Some smoker boxes are designed specifically for gas- or charcoal-fueled grills, while others are more versatile. More holes usually means more ventilation, but you also don’t want the wood chips to catch fire. Less durable smoker boxes have a tendency to stain and warp under high temperatures.
