  1. Live by High River Alberta and use a 20 inch Horizon Marshall a weber a Bradley and a Space Grill. Like to hear what anybody has to say and look forward to some good conversation, somebody else's experience can save a lot of headaches. Mostly a red meat fan and like to think that I do a good roast, the Brisket gets better each time but is not even close to what I would like, also do a fair amount of fish and had really good luck with Salmon. Do not think I am of the caliber to give advice but sure don't mind receiving it.

    I run a Bradley so I use the pucks. I also use an A-MAZE-N Pellet Smoker (AMNPS) which uses sawdust and pellets. In my WSM Mini, I use charcoal and wood chunks. Amazon sells a good selection of wood chunks. 

  5. Thanks,
  6. I have been using lump charcoal and what ever flavor wood chunks, BBQs Galore has a good selection, I like the weekend warrior charcoal the best with pecan chunks. I have been working on a contact for pallets of hickory andmesquite . slow process

    I used lump for the first few months I used the Mini WSM but have moved on to plain old Kingsford briquettes and wood chunks from Amazon as they are cheaper and if you buy $25 worth the shipping is free. 

    There is a member called dirtsailor and another, cfarmer, who do more in the mini than I do. If you message them, they could give you better advice but they are in the US and have access to some stuff it is hard for us to get.

  11. Thanks I will check it out right now.
  12. Good info, I have been on the right track, use the same thermometer as you, usually use lump charcoal and pecan ,apple or hickory chunks. I have used birch also, I was thinking no bark would be better.
