I've done about 6 smokes with chips and they always come out great. I bought a WSM and wood chunks to go with it! My first wood chip smoke with the WSM was great.
When I smoked with the chunks, I didn't soak them (like I usually do with chips) and I got a white billowy smoke and not great flavor. No thin blue smoke. I used the minion method.
Any suggestions? I have pulled chicken smoke coming this weekend and if it doesn't go well, I'm thinking of just switching back to my little foil packets of chips!
