Hyvee Culinary Expert Tip
To get tender smoked foods from the grill, use indirect heat. On a charcoal grill, place the coals on one side; place an aluminum foil pan on the other, directly under where the food will cook. For a gas grill, heat with all burners on high, then turn one side of the burners off and place the food there.
