Morton's coarse kosher. They have nice size pieces.

You only do the exposed meat, leaving skin/fat cap on.

The theory ( I think) behind using large chunks salt and covering exposed areas, is that you create a salt curtain which the smoke/heat must travel through, in addition to seasoning the bark.
