I'm still not sure how many chips do you guys use for a 10 hour smoke? I have been using the small Hickory chips that you get a Lowe's. I wrap them in foil and punch a few holes in the foil. And put it on the charcoal. The last smoke I did was a butt and went through about a bag of chips. I think this might be way overkill. The chips never completely burn to ash. Or maybe I never really gave them a chance.
