jonboy, if you have an accurate food scale,weigh out several chunks of wood. Place them into a Microwave Oven, turn on and set for about 5 to 10 min. and re-weigh the chunks again, the difference in weight will give you a percentage of moisture loss. Repeat above step untill there is only a very small amount weight difference.

Then you are ready to get smoken.
