Since I only have a charcoal bowl in my Brinkmann and not a fire box. I mostly use pre soaked wood on a bed of Kingsford coals. I soak 3-4" chunks in a 5 gallon bucket for about an hour. I remove about 2/3 and leave the rest soaking. I also use dry wood.
Why would I use wet, moist and dry wood on the same project?
Answer: To make it easier to maintain my ideal smoker temperature. If my fire is too hot, I'll add wet wood. If my fire is too cold (ironic eh?), I use dry wood. If it is just right, but needing smoke, i add the moist, pre soaked wood for smoke.
If I had access to good woods in large number, I would consider all dry and no charcoal, other then for starting the fuel. But since I have to buy my chunks in 10lb bags, I want to get the most out of it without having it burn up and producing little smoke.
