We had some leftover beef from those lunch time burritos and a couple tortillas left in the package so quesadillas seemed doable. I was hoping to make a meal of roast pork but it just wasn’t going to be ready in time. I rigged a smoke box from a heavy foil loaf pan and filled it with wood chips to turn the new grill into a smoker – you cover the pan with more foil and poke a few holes into it, then place it next to or atop one of the burners. It worked pretty well.
The pork shoulder spent all day in there at around 250-275, I changed the wood chips out three times. I decided to finish it in the regular oven and it’s in there now, covered with foil, looking for 190 degrees. Pretty happy with the rig as a smoker, knowing I can get more heat just by turning a knob. It has enough burners to get easily past 500, I haven’t gone past that yet but a pizza project I have in mind will test the limits. My pizza stone will fit right in there.
