Wish I had read this part of the forum first. Did a load of chicken last weekend on the new 066 and used a chunk of wood about 2 1/2 oz. Way too much smoke. Learned now from above to go with much less. Thanks for all the above advice.

When they say 2oz of wood; they mean 2oz of wood.

I've weighed some of the chunks I got, and they seem to be 2.25 to 2.5 oz., or 4 to 5 oz.  Should I be trimming the smaller ones to 2 oz., or is 2.25 or 2.5 OK?

The bigger the chunk, the slower I have found they smoke, the longer they last.  So I leave them alone as long as the lid closes on the smoke box.

 

As a matter of form, rather than resurrect 7 or 8 year old threads, it is always better to start a new post. Some of the contributors you are replying to are probably dead by now. Cookshack has left a lot of old stuff in place when they started the "new" Forum. Some of it was meant as legacy, but this particular thread is really moribund and should be archived.

I agree it's not cool to resurrect old threads.

I can not really read the dates in the lower left corner, they don't have any contrast in my browser.

And as this showed up in the recent topics, I assumed it was a new thread I hadn't seen.

This: "I can not really read the dates in the lower left corner, they don't have any contrast in my browser."

I never saw the dates.

How about "Hi, how are you, welcome back!" 

"Some of the contributors you are replying to are probably dead by now."

What a pleasant thought.

"...but this particular thread is really moribund and should be archived."

More death references.  
If you're a forum moderator, go ahead and archive it.  You're not encouraging use of this forum with this approach.

Wow, sorry if I offended. I am certainly not the forum moderator. One of the major problems with this forum is that there isn't one. In any case, I still maintain that a thread that is more than 7 years old is past the end of its useful life. If you've been reading here over the past year or so, you know the forum itself is struggling to stay alive since the platform change CS chose. Yeah, more death references, I guess. At least that's one certain thing in life
