I put my briskits in my WSM cold & moist, then hit it with wood chunks heavy for first hour or so as WSM is coming up to temps (i let it run for about 15 min after adding hot coals) and keep wood burried in spots in the ring for smoke intervals. Get a nice ring around the meat, not to much - just enough. The smoke ring isn't as important to me as the taste IMHO, but surte looks purty...
