I use 4-5 chunks smaller than my fist. I mix a couple in with the lump as I fill the Egg and then have 2-3 near the top, one of them near the middle. Then I light the fire in the middle and that one chunk will burn first.

For brisket I would use more oak than cherry.

I don't add more since the ones that are buried will burn later in the cook.
