Hey everybody, thanks for the replies! I've got charcoal, mesquite pellets, "Royal Oak" brand natural wood lump charcoal, real apple wood branches, cherry branches too! Some advice for my first burn on which fuel to use is best. A buddy named Bobby had a BBQ cafe and used Kingsford with lighter fluid and wet apple wood and it comes out fine. Jeff says "TABOO" on the fluid and charcoal is filled with chemicals, with which I agree...but some advice would be great. I'm on my way out to get a lump charcoal "Chimney"?
Starting first smoke in two and a half hours and I'm sure I can get through it with what I have but...advice would be great!
