Two important things to check before smoking on your grill.
- Make sure your grill is on a solid level surface
- Make sure your drip pan is relatively clean. Smoking or steaming with a dirty drip pan can affect the taste of your food.
Steaming is good for such foods as oysters, clams, lobsters, shrimp, and even vegetables.
- Close the drip pan valve and fill the drip pan with water (be sure not to overfill your drip pan).
- Heat the grill with both controls on “HIGH” for 20 to 25 minutes.
- Keep control on the high setting and cook to desired taste
Do not attempt to move your grill with water in the drip pan, and until your grill has cooled before draining out any remaining water.
ADDITIONAL STEAMING TIP
Remember, now you’re trying to keep the grill temperature LOW.
Since you have your controls set on high to make the water or liquid steam, you will have to add more liquid every hour or so as it steams out. You can also move your grill into a shaded area (before you put the liquid in) to help keep the temperature low. Your goal should be cooking at approximately 275 – 300 degrees.
