Alright guys Friday I bought my first smoker. It is a New Braunfels Hondo model. I burned a whole bag of coal in it today to burn it out and cooked some boneless skinless chicken breast and some corn on the cob did great as a grill. Now here is my question tomorrow I am going to attempt to smoke a rack of ribs can I use charcoal in the firebox with woodchips or should I get some real wood and just use the coal to get the smoker to temp and to light the wood? Any advice, tips greatly appreciated looking forward to having lots of fun but want to limit the bad problems if I can.
