How much wood do you put on and do you soak them first? I ask cause last weekend when I did my first smoke I didn't have a nice blue smoke, I had bellows of smoke coming out of the vent on top.(Check out my first smoke post for qview) I tried dry chips and wet chips, nice smokey flavor but it was a bit too much smokey flavor.
Also around here I can only find wood chips not chunks which will burn longer. Normally in my BBQ and smokerbox I soak the chips for about 2 hours and they last a nice while giving off a thin stream of smoke from the holes in the box, However when I lay them on the lump coals, even before I close the door I can see a huge bellow of smoke starting.Should I put dry/wet chips in foil and then place that on the coals?
