Default smoked malt

I have never used smoked malt before, and would like to use 2.4% in an imperial porter. I have two questions: 1. is that enough, using 6.7% crystal 80 & 4.4% each chocolate and roast malt? 2. can I add oak chips and bourbon, or would that not play well with the smoked malt?

You're going to need way more than 2.4% to get any sort of flavor contribution. I've brewed a couple brown ales with smoked malt and I started at 12% and eventually moved up to 20% and it could still use more.

I'd probably dial in the smoke before I started adding a bunch of other flavors, but that's just me.

It really depends on what kind of smoked malt. Is it peat smoked? Briess cherrywood smoked? Wyermann Rauchmalt? Best Maltz rauchmalt? All of these have very different levels of smoke.

Changed to 19%, also put the bourbon and oak chips in the recipe, unless I hear differently

In a beer like that, i doubtyou'll taste 19% Weyermann's. 40% probably.

Personally, I like 50-100%.
