Smoking food is one of the best ways you can prepare food, since it both imparts a rich, wood grainy flavor and treats food without needing to add excess oils (which also add extra calories and fat). But what happens if you don't have a large backyard and smoker?

CHOW.com Senior Food Editor Jill Santopietro recommends that you smoke all sorts of things: fish, cheese, salt, and, of course, meat. And you don't need a fancy smoking device: You can smoke food on a basic kettle grill. Watch the video to learn how to make a smoker from your grill.
