Rosemary is the natural candidate to try.

it might be interesting to try bay leaves, too.  I would definitely wrap in foil before putting in the smoker box.  True Jamaican jerk is cooked over allspice wood, so I don't see why it wouldn't work.  So might add some whole allspice berries to the mix in the foil, too.

It works great in my beer butt chicken.  Throwing some in the water pan at the bottom might be another experiment.

I did a couple of racks of lamb last week & threw some rosemary in the firebox, I also put some in a piece of foil with a little water in it, not sure how much flavor it added, but it sure smelled good as it was cooking.

Hey Mike, with a #4, how much did you put in? I am not sure what would be needed to add the flavor to the meat and not be overpowered by the smoke.

I have a plant in the backyard so I just grabbed 5 or 6 stalks, threw half in the box and put the rest in foil w a little water...
