Grills and smokers are great choices for summer cooking. Gas grills are versatile and can be great for cooking outdoor meats and vegetables. Smokers are excellent for cooking smoke-infused big meat dishes such as brisket. There can be some complicated reasons for choosing one over the other. 

  • Charcoal and gas grills are primarily used for grilling. The food is cooked over a flame. Grilled food can be both quick and delicious! But, as far as taste goes, smoke isn’t a contributing factor.
  • Smokers have a reputation for making better-tasting food than any other variety of grill. An incredible depth of flavor is achieved when you smoke your food. 
  • The owner of a successful BBQ restaurant gives a thumbs-up to smokers as the best method for cooking meat slowly at low temperatures and choosing certain types of wood for extra flavor.

More About Smokers

Slow-roasting big cuts of meat such as tenderloin, ribs, and brisket is what smokers are primarily all about. However, you don’t have to stop there. You can also achieve perfection by smoking chicken, fish, and other surprising things—such as smoked cream cheese!  

Because they are typically larger than gas grills, you can cook more with most smokers. Imagine smoking a rack of ribs on one end of the grill and a chicken on the other. In the meantime, you can heat up various side dishes on the grill, as well.
