You also need (in my opinion) to know the type of wood that was used in making your lump.
Not all lump is the same as to burn characteristics (mesquite lump will spark and spit and impart a very strong flavor not necessarily good for medium to long times in any smoker especially a WSM).
Probably would be good to match the lump type with the wood type you are supplementing it with. Can also add compatible type woods with your lump... if your lump is from oak would be O.K. to use any of the fruit woods or pecan or hickory with your oak lump.
