I have used kingsford comp briquettes with chunks of apple/oak/cherry when smoking pork butts before.  Results turned out quite nicely.  

 

Royal Oak is my go to, and what we use exclusively in competitions.  But in a pinch the comp briquettes have worked well enough that I'd used them again.

Absolutely. Is there any other kind?

 

How else do you smoke with Cherry, Apple, Mesquite, Alder, etc?

 

Pellets I suppose?

 

 

 

 

I call BS there Scovie, after all, you were the one with the indoor smoker, remember?

Even that thing uses gall dang WOOD CHIPS.
 
I am unclear what you would use for smoking besides wood chips/chunks or pellets...
 
Are we talking about charcoal for heating the wood chips or wood for the actual smokability?
 
Cuz I am confused as to what exactly you are calling BS.

In the WSM you fill the charcoal basket with briquettes and 3-5 small fist sized wood chunks. Typically, most of us throw a 1/2 full lit chimney of briquettes on top and let everything slowly burn for 12-20 hours, but Joyner gets fancy and puts bricks in his to the fire burns around the bricks in a circle. :D

UDS Ugly Drum Smoker you use charcoal too. Pretty much I would say all vertical smokers with a couple exceptions (has firebox or is gas).

Are you referring to the competition natural?

I personally find that the blue bag burns much slower than Royal Oak lump.

I do like to BBQ.....and I like toys.

I love that BGE....if I knew how efficient they were and they can do it all .....It might have been the only cooker I own.
