As far as the smoke ring? I've heard that some salts, especially sea salts may contain higher percentages of nitrates. I don't think it helps in formation, but wetting a brisket with Wooster a few hours before smoking does make for a darker ring.
Maybe I'll try a flat doctored with Tenderquick... it does work and I have no issues using it in brines and sausage.
