I am pretty new to smoking and have a few questions. I bought a Brinkman Smoke & Pit Pro used though it is like brand new. I know alot of you guys just use wood, but I have been using charcoal with wood chunks that I am able to buy up here at the local farm store (they carry the full line of main Cooking Woods) My question is should I be using briquttes or hardwood lump charcoal and what is the best way to use it? I want to smoke a few racks of baby back on Sunday but want to make sure Im doing it right. I have a few good rubs and can get any kind of wood just not enough of it to use it alone. Just need to know whats the best charcoal to use and right way to use it. Thanks. I look forward to mreally learning here.
