Water is important for meat tenderness and most important, temp regulation. If your bullet smoker has a water pan, use it. It's there for a reason. The other stuff is all personal taste. I like adding fruit juice to the water, but you may find just plain water to work fine for you.
as a general rule, I use one mesquite/oak for every apple/cherry etc. it gives me the best flavor.
