I've done some in the smoker. I don't really have any advice for you other than putting it in a pan.

I do it quite often in the pit master university class. Make it your normal way in a pot, use last weeks pulled pork for the meat, heat it up on the stove or top of fire box to get it hot and then transfer it to the smoker for about 5 hours with lid off.

I made the chili and the smoke flavor for the apple and mesquite chips is GREAT. I will try to make chili that way every time if my wife will let me!!!

I make beans on the grill all the time, so I don't see how chili would be that much different. My beans have a lot of meat and veggies in them, so it wouldn't be much different. One suggestion though that I've found works best with my beans. Go buy an iron skillet!

I have my trusty bean pan that is a small skillet that fits nicely on the grill. For chili, try a dutch oven but try to get something more wide than tall if possible. That way you have much more surface area of the food to contact the smoky goodness. Cast iron can be expensive, but I found the cheapos are fine if you cure them right. I bought mine at an "Old Time Pottery" in Independence, MO, for cheap. Wouldn't think to shop there for that, but they had a huge selection at the time at 50% or so of what you'd pay in an outfitter's catalog.

Another trick I've found in making my beans (and would go for chili, too) is to start it all in the same pot on the stove. I cook my burger/meat/bacon a little bit to get the temp up a bit and render some fat and cook the onions/peppers down a bit. If i put the onions in raw they never get very tender smoking/grilling at low temps. Besides, any liquid you have will soak up the smoky flavor nicely. Once you have the starter ready on the stove, add beans, tomatoes, sauce, etc. and let them warm up to the temp of your grill. Then, take the pan straight to the grill. The cast iron will keep the temp steady and decrease the time it takes for everything to equal out temp-wise.

Hope that helps! I use my skillet for everything on the grill. Cast iron can't be beat for that. Also great use: put it on the side (offset heat) when you're cooking steaks on the grill and melt butter and mushrooms. Timing is perfect for a nice topper!

Put the ground meat on the grill right out of the pack and smoke it until done. That should get you an early start on the smoked flavor. Then just food process into smaller pieces or chop it as you like.

Dutch Oven, right on top of the heat. Great results for me.

make sure you are using something with a thick bottom, cast with porcelain interior would work great. regulating hot spots and temperature is the problem
