This summer, think inside the box - the smoke box, that is - and turn your grill into a backyard smoker by adding wood chips to impart flavorful depth to meats, seafood and vegetables. Pairing the right spice with the right wood quickly turns an ordinary cookout into an extraordinarily tasty outdoor feast.

"When you combine different spices and seasonings with various types of wood, you can add distinctive layers of flavor to all kinds of grilled foods," said Chef Kevan Vetter of McCormick. "If you're grilling fish - like salmon, for example - a great way to give the meal a unique, smoky flavor is to use pecan or mesquite wood chips. Then add a complementary seasoning like McCormick Grill Mates Fiery 5 Pepper Seasoning."

Serve up this spicy, smoky recipe for Five Pepper Salmon, which pairs perfectly with a grilled corn succotash. For more smoke and spice pairings and tips to turn your gas or charcoal grill into a smoker, visit To connect with other grilling enthusiasts, join The Grillerhood at
