Does it make a difference whether the chips are soaked before hand? If so, do you do a wet/dry mix?

Thanks for the replies. I had been using dry but kept seeing celebrity bbq chefs soak the wood and as the reason I wasn't soaking them was forgetting to, I began to wonder if it was correct.
I have a wood chip box and fill it regardless of what I am doing including burgers. I set the box right beside the hot coals Hope y'all get smoke rings on a burger.
I did a pork burger tonight with applewood. Waited until i had smoke (about 3 minutes). For smokey burger btw, I close the lid even though the burgers are being direct grilled.
Cheers and keep on smoking.
