I just smoked my first half chicken it was real good Im wanting to do a pork butt how much charcoal should I start with and how much wood chips should I use should I soak the wood chips in water or use them dry.
Welcome Rookie,

Since you are asking about the amount of charcoal to use, I'm assuming that you are using a charcoal smoker. Check out the thread on charcoal smokers. I think alot of you questions will be answered there.
Good morning and welcome to the forum. Post some pictures of your smoker so we can better help you.
