OK - seems like a really basic question but I didn't see the answer in a quick scan of other posts: Can we make our own chips for smoking by using a chipper? Do I have to season the wood first? What wood thickness should I aim for prior to chipping? Is there anything I need to watch out for (bark,moss on bark....)? We have just purchased a Masterbuilt Pro and intend to use it with propane. Main use will be bacon but I want to try wings, ribs, etc before I commit a whole pork belly.
