I found a local resource for all kinds of wood that I think I'll visit this weekend. I have oak and mesquite but thought I'd get apple and alder to try some different flavors. He advertises about a dozen varieties including wine oak taken from old wine barrels.
Okay folks, just bought a bunch of spare ribs for my first jump into the deep end. I'm reading more than I can comprehend right now on smoking and really looking forward to getting things going this weekend.
