pro 100 smoker

I’ve been using dry sawdust in my Pro 100 smoker and it seems to last an hour maybe an hour and a half. This is with upper and lower vents closed. Would it last longer if I soaked the sawdust in water or some other liquid? Some times I refill the smoke pan to get longer smoke time. I thought the Pro 100 manual said to use dry sawdust.
@djc51 I always soak my sawdust before I start the smoker. I’ll have a review of this up in a couple of days that shows hows I do it but basically, I add the sawdust, then I add water and mix up the sawdust so it is all wet. Then I form a bowl with the sawdust, I push the center down and then form the sides up, close to the top of the bowl. I’ve never had to refill my smoker doing this!

@djc51 Here is a link to an analysis of soaking vs not. The article argues against soaking except under certain circumstances. It seems to make sense to me. https://amazingribs.com/more-technique-and-science/more-cooking-science/myth-soak-your-wood-first
