Tips from Our Cook
To make wood chip foil packet, tear 12 x 12-inch square of heavy-duty (or double layer of regular) aluminum foil. Place 1 cup dry hickory wood chips onto center of foil. Seal packet, by bringing two of the ends together the chips; fold down in a series of 2 to 3 tightly sealed folds. Fold the short ends up and over 2 to 3 times, pressing firmly to seal at each fold. Using fork, pierce top of packet several times.
