Default Ugly drum wood question

Happy New year all! I have a very simple question but just need a second opinion. I usually use fist sized chunks of wood in my basket but for xmas my mother-in-law gave me a couple of bags of chipped apple wood. How should I put it in the basket? the only time I ever used chips it smoked like crazy during the warm up then when the meat went on the chips had all burned up. I have seen people wrap it in foil and punch holes in the foil. Would that be the answer?

Save the chips for grillin chicken & chops they won't work in a UDS at least enough to notice.

Yep. Even if you soak them, they will burn up too fast for use in a drum.

I'll third those opinions. Never had good luck with chips in my UDS. I pretty much only use chips in my soldering iron cold smoker.

I'll make it four thumbs down for the chips, use chunks in your drum. Apple is a good wood for smoking btw.
