Mrs. Tom’s Secret

Mrs. Tom was not sure if she had reached the Rasta Mon as he appeared to be engulfed in smoke at the time. However in the spirit of détente she left him with a secret used by gas griller’s who still were purist at heart. She told the Rasta that he could obtain his favorite flavor profile by taking his favorite wood chips, soaking them in water for about a half hour, wrapping them in aluminum foil. Then, poke holes in the foil and place the packet right on top of the grill and close the top creating an additional smoky flavor.
