Easy to find charcoal that has surprising results is Stubb's. They have have it at Lowe's. Any hardwood all-natural briquet will do well. I'm not a fan of the kingsford products, but the competition variety will do in a pinch.

For wood, I use chunk hickory at about a 2:1 ratio briquets:chunks by volume in a nice even mixture.

Good luck, and don't be discouraged if things are tough controlling temps at first. These drums get way more stable after a couple cooks on them.
