Well, I'm afraid my newly ordered AMNS won't be here in time to cook with tomorrow. So I'm going to have to improvise. I'm using my big gas cooker because my gas grill is too small and my UDS is at my parents house, miles and miles away. So I'm going to use chips and put them in pouches and place them on top of the "roof" over the burner. My question is this: should I soak the chips before putting them into the foil? I've heard both theories. But, in my mind, the whole theory of soaking the chips is so they don't burn up too fast. But if I am putting them in foil, it seems as though the foil barrier would keep them from burning up too fast, thus negating the need to soak. Am I right? Thanks.
