Smoked Chocolate Brownie - not smokey! Did the chips "burn out"?


I tried to make Nic Williams' recipe of Smoked Chocolate Brownies (except I used Pecan not Apple chips), and followed it pretty accurately.  However, although it was very, very nice indeed, they were not smokey.  You couldn't really tell it was cooked on the egg.

I am pretty new to the Egg and wonder if one of the reasons was that I put the chips on too early.   I lit the lump a good couple of hours before I baked in order to guarantee a good stable temperature (which I achieved).   And I put a handful of chips (not soaked) onto the lump about an hour before I baked.

Any thoughts? 

Too little chips?  Too early on?  Should have soaked?

Thank you.
