Think you can’t get that authentic barbecue smoke flavor with your gas grill? Think again. At Kingsford, we’re in the business of innovating every grilling experience, and that means getting a little creative. To use Kingsford® Signature Flavors Wood Pellets in your gas grill, all you need is a bit of tin foil.

You Will Need:

• Scissors

• Heavy duty aluminum foil (12” wide)

Kingsford® Signature Flavors Wood Pellets

• Sharpened pencil

PRO TIP: Minimize crinkles in the foil as much as possible by folding carefully and working on a flat surface.


Place a 12” x 14” piece of heavy duty aluminum foil on a flat surface, shiny side up.


Fold in half to create a crease.


Unfold and place 2/3 cups of pellets on one side of the foil.


Re-fold in half and fold the top and bottom edges over about ½” twice, repeat with the rightmost edge.


Flip over the pack and, using a sharpened pencil, poke a few holes in the side with no visible folds to allow the smoke to escape.


Place on your gas grill for added smoky flavor.
