Does it make a difference whether the chips are soaked before hand? If so, do you do a wet/dry mix?
Don't soak them. It only delays the wood from actually smoking. Dry wood is what you need.
yup dont wet them does nothing
Yep, what they said!
If you are using dry chips dont they burn fast? How much do you use with dry chips for a shorter smoke say 2 hrs for burgers
Here is a link to an article about the myth of soaked wood being better.
Thanks for the replies. I had been using dry but kept seeing celebrity bbq chefs soak the wood and as the reason I wasn't soaking them was forgetting to, I began to wonder if it was correct.
I have a wood chip box and fill it regardless of what I am doing including burgers. I set the box right beside the hot coals Hope y'all get smoke rings on a burger.
I did a pork burger tonight with applewood. Waited until i had smoke (about 3 minutes). For smokey burger btw, I close the lid even though the burgers are being direct grilled.
Cheers and keep on smoking.
