Rib Question!!!!!!!! Wood chunk Question!!!!!!!

tomarrow im doing my second set of ribs the first came out so good 3 slabs didnt last 10 min... i did them in the rack at 250-300 for 3hrs...my question today is first i want to use wood to smoke and should i soak them or not and how many pieces to use for a 3-4 hr cook and should i use them all at one time and second...what is the best method should i stay direct or go indirect....with the smoke if i go indirect will it keep some of the smoke flavor out ..and thirdly..should i use the rack or go flat i have a xl so space isnt the problem.....i just want to switch it up a little and want my fellow eggers opinions on things!!!!

    Indirect definitely. No need to soak wood chunks. Use as many as you like. I used 7-15 chunks depending on my mood and size. I put it all at once so I dont need to open it at all during cook.
