The wood in my CS Smokette does not turn to ash after a long (12 hour) smoke but remains as a black chunk of charcoal. I do get some smoke early on in the cooking process but after about an hour or two, the volume of smoke disappears. I am using Hickory, Apple and Cherry chunks from Cookshack and cooking at a temp of 225. I am storing my wood in a garden shed. I don't use the Smoker very often but this seems a bit unusual. Is it possible that the wood is too dry or too damp. Comments and advice would be appreciated.
