Sat I'm trying my first smoking experience using a modified ECB. I've got some rub, and have the ecourse ready to go over again. So the temp needs to be around 250 for around 5-6 hours, in foil for the first 2-3 hours. The only charcoal I have is some mesquite, but I have JD pellets, and some wood chips etc. I have a charcoal chimeny, how much charcoal do I put in the smoker at once? What's the best wood/charcoal for ribs? I'll be removing the membrane also since I heard it keeps flavor out, also have installed a different temp gauge in the lid and have a wireless prob thermo also. I think Im ready to go but always am open to tips/tricks for help. Thanks!
