Quick and easy way to soak chips

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I realized I had not soaked my chips and the smoker was ready to go. I used jar sealer for my vacuum sealer and it worked like a charm! I know this because the water level dropped two inches in a couple of minutes indicating the chips were absorbing the water.

IMHO it does no good to smoke chips. The water makes steam not smoke. The chips have to dry out before the can smoke. You will see the steam coming out.

Happy smoken.

That is actually a neat idea.  Thank you for sharing that. BUT.....I don't soak them any longer either.

Don't soak.... can contribute to excess creosote and it won't smoke until it dries out.

That's cool! Science finds it's way into the darnedest things. You can also use the same principles for marinating and brining, though I'm guessing you already knew that.
