What are the advantages of the smokers grills?
A smoker is a cooking appliance that can maintain low cooking temperatures while producing smoke and holding in it around the meat. The meat will absorber all this smoke and will give you that particular flavor that you are looking for.
Cooking on smokers grills offer plenty of versatility and can be used to roast, smoke, bake, and braise. You can cook a variety of different foods including pizzas simply by adding pellets or charcoal before setting the temperature and walking away. Check on the food several times during the process is not need it.
There are many kinds of smokers and smoker/grills out there. You can buy wood smokers, charcoal smokers, gas smokers, electric smokers, and pellet smokers. All those models have pro and cons, but the most important factor is you, what kind of barbecue you are looking for? Are you passionate about the benefit of cook on a smoker?
This is the point as the smokers are not really different then others barbecues but what it make it very different is the extra smoke flavor to your meat. Yes, there are other benefits you can read about, but the real benefit of owning a pellet grill is the quality and flavor of the food you can make on them. Professional barbecue chefs use wood is because it provides the best flavor, also depending of what kind of wood you use the flavor that you are going to get.
Some professional chefs actually combine different kind of wood to get an specify taste on the food. You can vary the flavor with the type of wood pellets you choose, and you can even mix and match to create the perfect flavor for whatever you put on your grill.
What kind of firewood can you use in a barbecue?
- Hard: Hard wood are those that come from trees with great hardness and resistance. They offer the best embers for the barbecue, and a fantastic calorific performance. As hard wood, the top wood, holm oak, olive or oak.
- Soft: Unlike the previous ones, these last burns very quick and less embers are obtained. It is not as powerful as hard wood. So it is intended for the preparation of quick dishes. Fruit trees are considered soft wood, except for the orange tree, which is considered hard wood.
- The hardest wood woods are those with the highest calorific value. Like to light a bonfire, or a fireplace, you have to take into account the heat capacity to achieve the most delicious dish. In some stores they may sell you what is known as “green firewood”. A much cheaper wood, but that has less calorific value and that gives off a rather unpleasant white smoke. It is not the best option when it comes to cooking.
Where should I locate my smoker grill barbecue?
Due that these types of barbecues generate a lot of smoke, you should have some considerations for their location. In the event that you are going to build one, if you build it with a hood you will not have to worry much about the smoke and you will have more freedom to choose its location.
On the other hand, if the one you buy is an standard barbecue, you will have to be a little more careful. Put it away from doors and windows, in an outdoor area where you will not have the wind against it, or the smoke generated will disturb you and your guests while cooking.
