I've been reading threads on using chips in an MES smoker. Seems folk talk about using 5 or 7 or so chips at a time for 30-45 minutes. Today is my day for asking clueless questions. 1. Do folk generally soak these chips? 2. Are we talking about the same size chips (really small bits as small as a single pinky joint though narrower.) 3. How far down do you close the damper in this case? Just seems like the chips I have are very small. I can't picture half a dozen providing strong smoke for 45 minutes, but I'm more than happy to be taught otherwise.
