Hi To all:

I have read somewhere on this blog that the Companion is not meant to use a plugged drain pipe because it has been made to be portable and so it should not be used in this unit. Isn't there any way to obtain the steam/flavor/smoke effect by using liquids? Thanks for any information.

@ Richard

You can add great smoke flavor by putting a small tray of the compressed wood pellets (Flav-o-buds, dry) in the back of the drip pan under the cooking grid. Let the grill preheat with the buds inside until smoke comes out of the stacks, then add your food.
