I`m fairly new on here
so if thisa topic has already been addressed , can you direct me to it?
I was talking to a person who has done more smoking than I have.
he mentioned I might be using too much wood.
I was talking to him about finding wood cheaper , since in miami , all I can find is small bags in home depot, or one guy I found who sells cords of oak
as we talked about actual smoking , he said " a lot of the better charcoals have wood in them , and are made to give food smoke flavor"
he also said when he smokes meat , he only puts just the soaked mesquite chips , or maybe one small piece of wood an hour on the coals.
I`m failry new to smoking.
each time I have used my smoker , I have been putting quit a bit more wood than that in there
can you guys help with the correct ratio?
