I live in the UK and have never had a smoker before. I have just ordered a WSM 22.5" and it is coming in a few days and I am planning on having my first BBQ at the weekend smoking some ribs and brisket and need some basic advice please. Want to know which of the following best brands and type I should be using?
Lump wood or briquettes also which brand?
Brand of rub, unfortunately I don't have time to make my own!
Also I know you are not meant to remove the lid whilst smoking to retain the heat, but should I baste my meat whilst smoking?
Sorry for all the questions, but need some advice from seasoned pro's!
