 Do i need to soak my wood chips in water using a Brinkman gas smoker?

You can.

If I am using chips, I soak, chunks I do not. I don't have many more chips - they burn too fast for me.

I personally don't soak any of my chips or chunks. Now you can but to me it just prolongs the time it thats to get smoke. I want smoke and I want it now.....

Chips & chunks are cured when you buy them. They will not absorb any appreciable amount of liquid. What little there is will be steamed off in no time, and it'll make no difference as far as the smoke goes.

Let's apply logic to this question. Our objective is to have chips/chunks produce smoke. Now if the wood is wet, it will smolder until the moisture is driven off. Smolder equals moisture (good) and white smoke (bad). {art of the fun of smoking is tending the fire, in this case adding chips.

Have Fun

Welcome to the SMF. Please give us a little introduction about yourself and your equipment. I moved your thread to roll call, so that everyone would have the chance to give you a warm welcome. It's all good my friend.
