- while the skewers are marinating, prepare your grill. cut a large piece of reynolds wrap non-stick foil and firmly fir it over the grill grate. preheat the grill to medium heat. for a charcoal grill, place 4-5 hickory chunks on top of hot coals and close the grill cover to let the smoke accumulate. for a gas grill, place the chunks in a smoker box or in a large piece of foil; fold up the sides to make a packet. poke holes with a fork and place on the grill. close the cover to let smoke accumulate.
