Question regarding smoking

Hello All,

 

I am a newly reformed EggHead...  I bought an XL in July and have been experimenting with it every week since then.  I am an old long time propane user...  The learning curve with lump charcoal has been fun!  I am HOOKED on the BGE and the BBQ Guru!  Doing chicken wings as we speak for football night.........

 

The ONLY criticism I have of the BGE is that when I put fine wood chips in for smoke, they only last for about an hour.  I have a lot of experience with the box smokers and have done quite a bit of hot smoking.  Nice thing with them is when your chips burn up, you open up, re-load, and get your 4 hours of smoke.  Does anyone have any "tricks" to make your wood last longer for more smoke?  I have always used the fine chips from Lowes and Gander Mountain.  Would larger chunks of hickory be necessary??

Thank you in advance.

Steve
