I use chunks also. With my setup the fuel goes in a bowl not a basket. I put in some charcoal then some wood chunks then more charcoal on top.

My setup uses an electric hot plate under the fuel bowl. The chunks just smolder with blue smoke once the charcoal is up and running.

When it is time for more fuel, I add charcoal but not additional wood chunks. By the time I may need more fuel, the smoke has already been absorbed into the meat ... no need for more.
ECB charcoal smoker altered to use electric burner and wood.

Like others have said, I do not soak my wood. And, in 20-plus years of trying different liquids in my water bowl, I have NEVER tasted any difference in the meat.

By all means do it, and tell your friends that it is your secret to good BBQ. It will impress them, and you can have a good laugh at their expense. That is honestly part of the fun of making good Que -- making people who can't cook anything beyond toast think you have a secret that they are one of the few people on earth that know about.

On tasting, it's all in the cooker, meaning design. Not selling, just saying. Steve.
