Smoking makes for take-it-easy cooking. Smoke from the wood chips wraps food in a blanket, sealing in the natural juices. It's an easy process, but it isn't quick. If you don't have a smoker, your grill with a lid and a pan of water works well. The liquid in the water pan keeps foods moist. To achieve that wood-smoked flavor, purchase hickory and mesquite chips found near the charcoal in most grocery stores.
