According to product literature, cold-smoking is better for putting wood flavor into food, as some fish and meats, which cook in 10 minutes or less, are not on the grill long enough when smoking with wood chips. By using smoke cones in your grill, you can cold-smoke food and then light the grill and cook it. The smoke cones seal in real wood flavor and the food’s own juices.
Smoke cones are available in mesquite, hickory, cherry, and apple flavors and have a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $3.99 each. A variety pack containing hickory, mesquite, and apple flavors is available for $11.97.
