I'm a lurker around here, but I've become so interested that I've become a smoker. I bought a WSM (the big one, because bigger must be better, right?). I've used it once and filled it up with lots of stuff - goat legs, pork shoulder, tri-tip, and chicken! It was actually surprisingly successful, but now I've got a question. I used mesquite lump charcoal, but when I read the manual (after I used the thing - makes sense, right?) it said that Weber recommends briquettes. I'm wondering why - what would it change using a different kind of charcoal? I'm planning on putting a turkey in there on Thursday, so wondering if I should switch fuel...
