I just ordered a WSM 22.5 today, it should be here in a couple of days. I've been smoking for a couple of years now, but only on a cheap SFB. Anybody have any tips on what fuel to use i would greatly appreciate it. I really cant wait to fire it up, Ive heard such good things about the wsm.
I use Royal Oak lump in my WSM with great results. Never tried the briquettes mostly because of the use of binders to form them. I know plenty of folks use them and like them. Most say the Kingsford comp bags are better than the traditional blue bags FWIW.
I use both in my WSM.  It really depends on how long of a smoke I plan on OR what I happen to have on hand.  If I'm doing a long smoke I definately use a quality hardwood lump
Thanks fellas, I figure I'll just do some smokes with both to get some knowledge of it, I just thought I would collect as much information as i can before it gets here in a couple of days.
