I am a true beginner in to the world of BBQ. I have owned numerous gas grills over the years, and have mastered the art of gas grilling. I recently received a WSM for a gift. I am wondering if anyone has any input on which type of charcoal works best. I bought a bag of kingsford briquettes, and a bag of royal oak lump. Does it really matter which charcoal is used? I know Matchlight is a no no, and lighter fluid is the devil. I have a chimney starter. My real question is their a difference between the way each one will work? Also I have seen people just use dry wood chunks for smoking, and some people soak the chunks, which is the right way to do it? So the short version of the above is:LUMP VS BRIQUETTE ? & DRY VS SOAK? ANY INFO OR OPINIONS WOULD BE WELCOME!!!
THANKS FOR SHARING
