I am having a hard time keeping my wood chips dry. I am using an electric smoker, very dry chips bought at home depot. I have tried using them after soaking them and using them dry. I have tried starting them using the torch. Is there some type of trick to keeping them going. I am going to be smoking my bacon on Thursday and dont want to keep opening the door to light them with the torch. I thought maybe the juices from the ribs were putting them out but I built a little foil tent over the chips but it still did not work.
