The first step for creating a homemade smoker on your charcoal grill is to place a small batch of unlit charcoal in the top corner.

Next, place some of your favorite wood for smoking on top of the charcoal pile. Make sure to soak your smoking wood in water first so it does not scorch. We use applewood for smoking in this video.

On the other side of the charcoal tray at the bottom, make sure to place a pan of water. Your smoked meat to be will be placed on the grilling grates right above this pan. We used homemade bacon from pork belly. Also place another water pan directly over the charcoal and applewood pile.

Once everything is set up, close the charcoal grill top and make sure to only open the vents on the opposite side of the charcoal and applewood pile. This creates air flow which draws the smoke a moisture from the water pans over the meat and gives it a nice smoked meat taste.
