    I usually add smoke for the entire cook, but I have read after four hours very little flavor difference.  But as I said, I add smoke the entire smoke.

  3. I smoke the whole time. It will get more flavor the longer it is in the smoke. Keep track of how much chips you use so you can adjust in the future.

    Happy smoken.

    Depends on if you want a good smokey flavor or just a hint of smoke flavor. I use smoke all the way through the cooking process
