Always wear heat-resistant barbecue mitts or gloves when using your Weber SmokeFire grill. Vents, handles, ash and grease system, and cookbox will all get hot during the grilling process and can cause severe burns. Be sure to keep your hands and forearms protected.
Preheat your Grill
Preheating your grill with the lid closed prepares the cooking grates and internal cookbox temperature for grilling. The heat loosens any bits and pieces of food hanging onto the cooking grates, making it easy to clean them off with a grill brush or scraper. Preheating your grill also gets the cooking grates hot enough to sear properly and also helps prevent food from sticking to them.
Caution: When using a stainless steel bristle grill brush, be sure to check for loose bristles. Replace the brush if any loose bristles are found on cooking grate or brush.
Put a Lid on it
It is important to remember to always cook with your grill lid closed. This will keep your internal cookbox temperature where you want it to be and thoroughly cook your food.
Mix it up
There are many varieties of Weber SmokeFire All Natural Hardwood Pellets like Hickory, Apple, Cherry, and more. You can experiment by mixing different flavors of pellets. Explore the possibilities.
Cook Time and Temperature
If you are grilling in a colder climate or in windy conditions, the cooking times could be longer. These conditions will lower the grill’s temperature, so always monitor your grill and use food temperature probes to ensure safe food temperatures. Remember to keep the grill lid closed as much as possible during cooking so the heat and smoke do not escape
