This isn't your everyday smoker. It's designed to accept both pellet and chips, neither of which need to be soaked before you toss them in the metal bar. Once the bar is filled, throw the whole thing into your grill, set the temperature, and wait for smoke to appear in about 20 minutes. You'll turn your BBQ into an instant, professional level smoker which infuses flavor into whatever food you're working with. When you're done, toss the whole thing in the dishwasher and plan your next dinner party.
