Why should you smoke meat with sawdust?
So why should you smoke meat with sawdust? There are two main reasons:

If you want to enjoy a rich smoke flavor that is considered difficult to achieve, you can do it with the help of sawdust. Experiment by sprinkling sawdust on the fire as the tree smokes until you reach the desired flavor. After cooking, you can taste the meat and decide whether it is too thick or too thin.

Many people think that grilling on an open flame is the only way to add a smoked flavor to the food they cook, and that’s almost always the case. Fortunately, you can use sawdust to overcome obstacles and add your favorite rich flavor, regardless of how you prepare your meal. Start by soaking the sawdust in water a few hours before baking the grill.
Detailedly, wood sawdust possesses combustible and carbon reducing capability. This magnificent feature motivates people to utilize it in daily life when making BBQ instead of coal and charcoal.
In addition, wood sawdust makes it much easier to control the smoker’s temperature which plays an important role in making delicious meat. Also, this kind of fuel produces a consistent amount of smoke instead of a lot of ash. Then, you can see that sawdust can burn much longer, hotter and enable you to have a nice BBQ party.
Do not forget to rain as much water as you can after an hour or two. This will allow you to moisten the wet sawdust and control the burning rate. Then place the aluminum foil on the grill and under the cooking surface to make it easier to clean at the end.
Spread a layer of moist sawdust evenly over the foil, then puncture another sheet of foil and place it on top. The holes allow smoke to escape and penetrate the meat, allowing you to enjoy the smoked flavor, regardless of the type of grill.
