New to smoking questions about charcoal?
I just got my new smoker and am now trying to learn how to use it. Yesterday did not go well when I tried ribs, so now my plan is to just light charcoal and wood in an attempt to maintain temperature and try to get consistent thin blue smoke. The problem is that I'm going through a lot of charcoal and at this rate it's going to be expensive.
So I'm just wondering where/what the best deal is on acceptable charcoal? Because from what I've read, some charcoal is not worth buying, between how fast they burn and how inconsistent.
Thanks for any tips
