smoke

I've been egging for about a year now and I used wood chips for a while and got used to having the short blast of smoke after throwing the chips on the fire.then i cam across hickory chunks that are supposed to last longer, but i have been using them for a while now and I still only get a short amount of smoke at the beginning of the cook. Any suggestions?I want more smoke but am not sure what to do.

    You're getting the smoke flavor just not the billowing smoke of an offset smoker. Add more chunks if you want more smoke flavor.

    If you are doing a low and slow cook bury chunks at various levels in the lump. That way you will get more smoke as the fire moves down in the lump.
