We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Smoker box use?

I constantly feel like I'm the one asking a subtraction question in a calculus class.  Pardon me if I'm dumbing the discussion down, but...

Does anyone use a smoker box?  I've seen several recipes online that call for one, but I've never tried it.  Typically I just soak wood chips, and place them directly on the hot coals before I put the meat on.  If I were to use a stainless steel smoker box, where would I place it? Directly on the coals as well?  Is it different if it's a cast iron box?

Any tips or pointers?  Any drawbacks or benefits?  I appreciate the help!
