It dawned on me, people use the minion method for smoking with lump. Well why not apply the same throught process to wood chips/chunks. Say you're going to use two cups of chips, soak one cup and leave one cup dry. When you put them in your pan, the dry will start smoking right away, while the wet ones will still put humidity into the smoker and then they'll start smoking once dried out, after the original dry ones are done! waddya think??
