Well first off I am not a stranger to smoking,i own a char griller smoke-n-pro and have had great success with it, to include my very first brisket .. The other night I used way too much wood in my newly acquired smokette 008 That I had to repair using all new electronics, it was given to me by a friend who hadn't used it in almost 10 years.
since i don't have the wood that is supplied by cook shack , I'm not familiar with the proper size,,i was going by my experience with my off set smoker...WRONG!!
I have never had biter tasting chicken thighs before and I never want to have it again.. Next time I use it I think I will just use a single small chunk for starters..
Oh..i also soaked the chunks and placed the chicken and wet wood in at the same time,, bad idea I guess...
