"Smoking" Tips from Chef Kyle - Part 1

Smoking on the Grill

Smoking is a great way to add flavor to anything you are grilling.

• You can smoke pretty much any kind of meat, vegetable or even fruit to add flavor beyond marinade.

• Trust your judgment on flavors.

• Try a variety of woods till you find your perfect flavor; hickory, cherry and apple natural woods, to start.

• You can get a variety of woods pretty much anywhere you can buy a grill – try your local home improvement store or nursery.

• As you experiment, you may find that certain woods combine with certain food better than others.

• In order to pull out the best smokes, remember that the heat depends on the ratio between charcoal and wood – you get more heat with more charcoal, less heat with more wood.

• The amount of smoke can vary depending on heat - the hotter the temperature the less smoke and less wood flavor.


"Fabulous to deal with! I had a family gathering of 26 for two meals in a "remote" location. La Prima was great to work with despite the distance from Philly. They were so helpful in selecting items within my budget. They showed up on time, the presentation was very well arranged, and most importantly - the food was delicious! They even provided containers for the leftovers and took trash with them! "
