Smoked BBQ on a Gas Grill? It's Possible!


I made Memphis Style Barbecued Ribs last night (the recipe was from America's Test Kitchen.)  It was the first time I ever tried smoking meat on my gas grill.  The setup was pretty easy; just some soaked hickory wood chips in an aluminum pie plate over one burner, and 2 more aluminum pie plates filled with water on the other burners.

The ribs developed a great crust, thanks to the spice rub, and had a great smoky flavor.  I'm looking forward to trying out more smoked meat recipes. One of the things I really like about americastestkitchen.com and cooksillustrated.com is whenever they have a recipe for the grill, they include directions for both charcoal and gas.  Happy Grilling!
