Foods that are grilled with an outdoor grill always have a special; taste and smoky wooden aroma which we miss on indoor grills.

Indoor Grill: A good indoor grill is the first thing you need! Find a good countertop grill unit that can cook your food a lot like an outdoor grill. Look for an indoor grill that keeps the juicy and tender flavor alive and never let your food dry.
Smoky Seasoning: You can use some smoked paprika and sea salt to marinade the meat or vegetables to grill. It can be a great supplement for your usual paprika and salt. Also, you can use it for seasoning. Smoky Barbecue Sauce: Use some extra smoky barbecue sauce to bring the flavor to you food.
Grill Some Bacon: A very simple trick to bring the smoky flavor into your food is grilling some fat before putting the food inside it. You can use few slices of bacon and let some leftover melted fat get burnt inside your indoor grill. Now put the food into you indoor grill and get the awesome smoky flavor. Just make sure you do not burn the fat too much.
Smoking Gun: If you love the smoky flavors of outdoor grill you can use a smoking gun. It will produce much less smoke than an outdoor grill but will taste just like it. The most amazing part is this device is very small, handy and easily controllable.

Contact or open Grill? Both of these smokeless indoor grills have advantages of cooking. An Open Grill is just like an outdoor grill. You can flip or easily check the temperature of the food with it. Add extra oil or sauce while grilling. On the other hand, Contact Grills keep the smokeinside and let the smoky flavor get into the food. It also takes small time than usual as it cooks the both side at a time. In terms of flavor, a contact grill is more preferable.
Keep patience: If you are using a contact grill make sure you don’t open it to check whether the food is done. It will simply keep losing the heat and smoke and make your food dry.
