Setup your grill for classic indirect heat.  If using charcoal, setup your coals on one side of the grill, leaving the opposite end clear.  If using propane, only light the burners on one side or one half of your grill, depending on the size.  Throw your wood chip box or foil smoke on the grates directly over the coals.  If you’re not familiar with using wood chips on your grill, click HERE to find out how.  It’s very easy!

Let your grill heat up to and maintain a 350 degree temperature.  Place your tomatoes opposite the heat, ensuring they are not directly over any coals or flames.  Look at that! – Now keep your grill lid closed!

After about 30 minutes, open your grill and check your tomatoes.  If the bacon is brown and the meatloaf is firming up, you’re ready to move forward.
