I'm new to SMF today and happy to have found y'all. Love smoking but have a lot to learn. We have an electric smoker Brinkman Gourmet dome style. It had 2 grill levels, a metal water bowl and electric grid/grill on the bottom of the smoker.
we have used water soaked chips placed directly on the grills, but read on the forum that water soaking isn't necessary. What about using chunks? 2 weeks ago we lost an 80foot hickory tree in our yard so we have lots of firewood and chunks for the smoker.
Are the chips/chunks placed directly on the electric grill, beside the grills, wrapped in foil, or ???
Appreciate your experience and thoughts.
