    I'm new to smoking and planning to do my first bacon in the coming week.

    Got a quick question though.

    On the packaging of the wood chips it says to soak the chips in water for the best results. I am going to use a Venturi smoke generator and in my mind it would never burn if wet.

    soaking really does not make any difference in the smoke. Most woods will only soak in about a paper thin layer of wet wood anyway. I only use chunks, never use chips.

    I don't ever soak my chips or chunks.
