    For me it depends...if its a pork shoulder I use about five medium sized pieces of apple and five medium sized pieces of cherry spread throughout the lump! If I am doing a low and slow beef roast I do the same but with pecan and mesquite! There is no real science to it just experiment and find what you like!

    Also depends on how smokey you want it! My wife and I love the smokey flavor others not so much!

    Thanks. I do like the smokey flavor but don't want it to be TOO strong, or overpower the meat. Doing a pork butt right now an have 4 good sized cherry chunks on. Next time will experiment with mixing. Thanks for info/advice!
