The equation for burning wood (Pure wood, not counting the smoke given off is:
C6H12O6 + 6 O2 equals 6 CO2 + 6 H2O
That's one molecule of wood + 6 molecules of Oxygen (plus fire to make the combustion happen) equals 6 molecules of Carbon Dioxide + 6 molecules of Water
That's in it's simplest form. Not concerning the unburnt particles that give flavor.
The lid of the charoal chute of my Stump's Smoker sometimes will have water dripping down from it when I open the chute. To me, this says that wood or charcoal is also a moist heat.
