Always use full lengths of wood, the biggest that fit easily into the smoker’s fire box. Two to three sticks of wood (up to 15" depending on the size of the fire box) will usually hold the desired heat and maintain the bed of coals for consistent smoke cooking. For best results, allow the wood to be reduced to non-flaming coals.
