    Charcoal or gas? How about both?

    I rarely use the gas. Mostly during the wintertime because I can get a more consistent heat while grilling. I also have a Brinkman gas smoker. It's not insulated so smoking during the winter is a PITA. Year round, I found the best results is to smoke for an hour and finish off in the oven. I like a mix of hickory and apple chips for pork. I've attempted to try and smoke fish a # of times and never once been successful.

    I always finish in the oven. I like to get a couple hours of heavy smoke into the meat to get a nice smoke ring then wrap in foil leaving the ends open, pour fruit juice in(almost any will work but i prefer apple or orange), then close the ends and throw it into a 180 deg oven for as long as I can wait. Let it rest for an hour and its like butter
