Topic Title: smoke

My wife recently gave me a holland grill for my birthday. I have smoked a boston butt and a turkey and both turned out good. However, I didn't get the smoke flavor I like, although I used an ample supply of pellets for the boston butt and added some liquid smoke to the water, in addition to the pellets for the turkey. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can get more somke flavor?


I have heard that the smoke cones from a company called Rutland work pretty good. They sent me a sample recently but I haven't tried it yet. You can buy these from True Value Hardware.

Web address for Rutland:

Check out the video on their web site.

Good luck-I hope this helps.


i have used my holland for 3 years now and have never been happy with its ability to smoke meat. i love it for regular bbq. i bought a traeger jr for smoking... and i love it... lots of smoke flavor.

I love hickory smoke flavor, I made a smoker chip box about six inches square with a shoe box style lid. it has about a 1" depth. i drilled six 1/8" holes in the lid to let the smoke out. Too many holes and it will flare up. remove your grate and drip pan, place the smoker box directly on top of the hot plate above the burner. as the grill heats up it will start to smoke at about 300 degrees depending on the size of the chip, i like large chips. It will add a wonderful smoke flavor and lots of smoke. I have also used Oak, Cherry and Apple. I slightly modified my grill to easily add the chips. this was done by removing the grease drip valve, you can store this until you need it again for steaming, then add a small bracket to the lower side of the box to hold the drip bucket directly under the grease drip pipe. This way you don't need to remove the valve and drip bucket when removing the drip tray, this makes the whole operation much easier and cleaner on the hands. It tokk me about 10 minutes to make my box but I'm sure you can find something that would work. I used an old sardine can the first few times, but the chips would flare up.


too much trouble but thanks anyway
