So how much "smoke" is there supposed to be? I can barely smell anything different before the smell of the cooking meat hits me. I don't see any smoke either. And when I opened up the bag of wood chips I expected to be hit with a liquid smoke kind of smell, but could barely smell anything. That's the smell when I open the grill lid, something's different, but it's certaiinly not smokey smelling

Sure it's blowing 40 mph here and I can't see 200 yards over most of the time, but my grill is fairly secluded on a porch.... Should I wad up some foil and plug the two rotisserie holes on either side of the lid?
You need to place the pouch as close to a burner as possible. Directly on top of the flavorizer bars is recommended. Leave the cooking grate directly above the pouch OFF so you can change out the pouch easily while cooking.

Too late.
I didn't soak the chips, so I figured on top of the grill would be better, where the instructions on the bag said. I opened the packet up this morning and they are a little darker.... like something was happening. I think I'm going to toss them on top of the deflector today just to see what happens or if they catch on fire. Live and learn.

Soaked or not, they need to be close to the heat source. They won't catch on fire because there's next to no oxygen.

Here's the smoker box I was talking about.
