Subject: New Smoker BBQ

Last week I bought a new Brinkmann Cimarron horizontal smoker BBQ. A big 250 lb baby made of 1/4 inch steel and a separate large firebox for indirect cooking. I have owned a small barrel type charcoal vertical Brinkmann smoker BBQ for a number of years and have enjoyed smoking with it. I read the manual for my new smoker and it mentions that it can be used with both charcoal or wood fired. Last weekend, I tried my new smoker BBQ for the first time and tried cooking some chicken & ribs with straight wood fired using some shag bark hickory from my wood pile. Unfortunately, it turned out a lot more smokey than our taste. I am wondering if I did something wrong or should I stick to just charcoal with adding wood chunks/chips. I have read that hickory is a strong wood. Does anyone use there smoker BBQ with straight wood fired and can provide me some tips. I have recently bought a house on a nice 5 acre wooded lot outside of Ottawa and have an abundance of hickory & sugar maple, plus a mixture of other hardwood trees and even a few wild apple trees. I would like to enjoy my smoker BBQ during the many years of smoking ahead using wood from my own forest. I am just wondering if I should continue experimenting with wood firing or stick to using charcoal and make my own wood chunks.
