I`m fairly new on here so if thisa topic has already been addressed , can you direct me to it? I was talking to a person who has done more smoking than I have. he mentioned I might be using too much wood. I was talking to him about finding wood cheaper , since in miami , all I can find is small bags in home depot, or one guy I found who sells cords of oak as we talked about actual smoking , he said " a lot of the better charcoals have wood in them , and are made to give food smoke flavor" he also said when he smokes meat , he only puts just the soaked mesquite chips , or maybe one small piece of wood an hour on the coals. I`m failry new to smoking. each time I have used my smoker , I have been putting quit a bit more wood than that in there can you guys help with the correct ratio?
