Thank you I have a question for you about the wood chips do I soak them or put them in dry

Thank you

Dry. Never soak. Wet wood will only produce steam when introduced to a heat source. The water first has to evaporate before it will produce smoke. The only time you would ever want to soak wood is if you were grilling on a cedar plank or you were cooking something requiring bamboo skewers.
