First WSM Smoke Today!
I was going to go with "K" briquettes but decided last minute to go with RO lump. I plan to do the MM so do I fill basket full of RO? How much RO do I light in the starter to pour on top?
I am doing baby back ribs (3 racks) and 2 tri-tips. I plan to start the ribs about 2 hours prior to adding the tri-tips. Can I start with 3-4 chunks of apple and the toss on a few chunks of hickory when I add the tips? Will I get much smoke flavor from the RO lump?
Having 10+ people over for my first smoke today to watch football and expectations are high since I am a good griller\cook. I am a little nervous about maintaining temps...
Any other suggestions are appreciated.
