Default "Self Smoking"

On the subject of “self smoking”.
I have an acquaintance that likes to talk cooking with me. He’s a nice fella, but what he knows about Q would fit in a thimble, and you would still have room for a finger. He’s originally from California (sorry West Coast guys, I know you’re not all the same) but he’s been living here for quite a few years. He makes comments like, “if there is no sauce on it, it isn’t Q”, just to mention one. Once I asked him what kind of smoking wood he likes best. He answered me, “Oh, I don’t use wood, I have a gas grill”. Oh, I said, then where do you get your smoke flavor from? “Why from the fat dripping on the fire producing smoke….. Hence, “self smoking”. Have I tried to explain to him the difference, YES!!!! Is it working, NO!!!! He loves the taste of my Q, but he is VERY opinionated, and stone walls change. So, I gave up.
Think I’ll go find an old tire to stuff in the firebox for my next smoke
N.B. 'Dera (modified), gone to another place (RIP), ECCG (el cheapo charcoal grill), an Alveron propane, and wood hog cooker, bullitt type smoker, a turkey fryer, and a pretty well stocked kitchen.

I was raised an only child, now I have brothers & sisters around the world!!
