In a Gas Grill


Putting Wood in a Gas Grill

Mojobricks wood smoke  is the fastest way to delicious mouth watering smoked meals! Adding  Mojobricks to your grill is the easiest way to bring on smoke flavor in a flash without all the complexities of figuring out how long or how much you need for the cook. Are you grilling on high heat?   “ MINIS are the smallest product we produce. Use 1 mini when cooking 16 ounces of protein or less. Add a 2nd mini if you want more smoke flavor on that lb or less. You can also add a Mini to another Mojobricks medium or largest cubes based on the weight of the protein you are working with. Visit our First of its Kind page for time and weights of Mojobricks smoke flavor.

Micheal McDearman of Getfiredupfoods recommends adding a mini to just about any cook. ” Think about safety first and place the Mojobricks  Mini atop the heat shield or just under the meat. Once that is accomplished you will find the smoke flavor coming off either the nut or fruit “compressed hardwood chunks” to be the easiest most forgiving of the hardwoods for smoke flavor in the market.”

The ” Mini” can also be used for fish filets or smaller chicken portions on a low heat, slow cook. Simply add a mini below the filet and turn the temperature down.



With as many as 400 grills to choose from it can be rather difficult to give you step by step instructions so as a general rule adapt the use of Mojobricks per these illustrations as it will best fit your needs, we hope.  Keep saftety in mind when using Mojobricks for smoke flavor.

Grilling is High Heat for short periods of time. Smoking is typically done with lower heat and longer cooking periods.

Grilling can be done using a mojobrick for smoke flavor.  This illustration is a little bit misguided. (See image below) First off – do not set the cube on the gas line rail. Place it instead just above the gas line rail on a hot metal surface, on a lip of an edge exposed to the flame or in a heat shield like a smoke box.

  While grilling you can heat up the wood until it ignites but be sure that its not sitting on the gas line rail.

In this photo you can see the grill is an inferred grill. Inferred uses the metal as the shield that extends the length of the cooking area. In this photo we placed a rack of ribs on the top grilling grate and the one bar-b-qube directly under it over the burner which is under the sheet metal.

The next series of pictures ( 3) total show you what to do if you have flavorizing rails that are separated by some distance. This Pitmaster used two beer cans and two Mojoqubes to smoke 2 big racks of ribs. Notice how the wood is set near the gas line flame. The other aspect of this cook is that the wood is burning in opposite directions. Mojobricks will burn like a fuse and when you use two cubes together you can keep them burning by using each pices to feed off the other;

If your gas grills flavorizing rails are in closer to each other – you can cook with the Mojobricks “Minis”, “Bar-b-qubes” and “Mojoqubes” set on the hot metal surface as seen in these pictures below. Here is a set up using a Grill to smoke a -4lb pork Shoulders and  racks of ribs;
