I use a horizontal barrel with an offset side barrel for smoking. I don't know the technical name for it...maybe it doesn't have one. It is charcoal.

Ignatius, Somehow I missed this post the first time around. Welcome to SMF. Since you have had a chance to look around and see what others have done, keep in mind that we would like to see pic's and hear about your great smokes and not so great smokes (we can even help you figure what you might of done wrong). Looking forward to seeing you in the forums.

Enjoy!
