1) Fill smoker box with dry wood chips (you only soak wood chips going directly on flames; if you wet wood chips before putting them in the smoker box, the water will have to evaporate before the wood chips will smoke).
2) Place smoker box directly on coals if using a charcoal grill or between flavorizer bars and grill grates if using a gas grill.
3) It may take up to 15 minutes for wood chips to start smoking.
4) Smoking box will be hot. Use heat resistant gloves or wait for box to cool before handling.
