Do you have to have a smoker to smoke meat, or is any grill capable of smoking?

A dedicated smoker will be a little easier to smoke your food (maintaining low and slow temps) but a grill is capable of making perfectly fine food. Are you thinking of charcoal grilling or gas?

I have a Royal Oak 30" charcoal grill that I bought from Wal Mart last year, and I love it. I use it almost everyday. This morning I put a pork butt on to smoke. I just wondered what the advantages are of a dedicated smoker. Thanks for clearing that question uo. b2
