While we don’t smoke meat for preservation as our ancestors did, I find the smoky flavor addictive. But, cooking on a traditional wood-fired smoker takes up our time, and you’ll need adjustments as you cook. Luckily advanced pellet grills serve the same purpose and give you the freedom to make temperature adjustments.
