I just purchased a scratch and dent Master Forge, verticle Propane Smoker.  It did not come with instructions.  I have never owned or use a smoker before and have many questions.  It has been seasoned with Pam Spray and hickory wood, which was actually smelled awesome!  Here are my questions:

1.  the wood started to turn to charcoal and burn.  should I add more wet wood?

2.  how much wood should I use?  

3.  how long should the wood soak?  (the packet of hickory chips instructed at least 30 min. but since I was just seasoning, I went minimum).
