Yay! I got the Maverick ET-732 that so many have raved about and wouldn't you know it, there is a weekend coming up? I will definitely be putting this to the test. Thinking of smoking a butt and spare ribs this weekend. I have the sibling rib challenge coming up in July, so my question to you guru's is this. I am using a Weber Kettle Gold. I have only used Kingsford Hickory Charcoal so far, but want to try different fuels. What do is the longest burning fuel that will help me maintain a slow smoke? Thanks for all that respond. I'm off to search the forum boards further. Look for some Q-view this weekend.
