Glad to join this site and see all the great stuff on here. I wanted some advice on how much wood should be used with a charcoal grill for smoking ribs and about how much I will need to add over the period of smoking my meat. Also, how long should I soak the wood (if at all) and what would be a good type to use (ie. oak, hickory, mesquite, etc...) This will be my first time and I would like to get it somewhat right and not have to do take-out. Ha Ha Ha. Thanks and I look forward to all the advise.
