I have a couple of buddies that have a MES smokers and they told me that they do not soak any of their wood chips for smoke. I have an older 06 model which I recently picked up and seems like it does smoke better when I don't soak my chips but the manual does instruct to soak the wood chips for 30 minutes. Also, the previous owner gave me a bucket of ground up hickory chips almost to the consistency of saw dust. I would soak that, would I?
