Default propane vs coal grill question

I got a propane grill and it is not giving me the same flavor as a charcoal
grill. Is there a way I can get that charcoal smoke flavor with a propane
grill?

Use some wood chips wrapped in foil and poke a couple small holes in it. Put
them on the heat substance i.e. flavorizer bars, ceramics etc. Have fun. BTW
when I blind taste test foods like steak, burgers, chicken (basically
anyhting cooked at high or not slow cooked most cannot tell the difference
between either my big MM grill or my genesis or charcoal (yes lump). Now if
I use standard briquettes anyone can tell as they leave a petroleum taste in
the food.

It will just burn up faster that way. A foil pouch or a tuna fish can with
a foil cover works good. Just poke a hole or two in the foil as you do want
some oxygen getting to the wood.

And using the can or pouch makes it easier to remove the ashes. :-)
