New to smoking/grilling

My husband and I bought a really nice grill/smoker last summer. Hubby has always done the grilling such as hamburgers,hot dogs, etc. but we haven't cooked much else on it and havn't used the smoker yet either. I have a rack of ribs that I usually cook in the oven, but was thinking about trying them on the grill this time.

Does anybody have any tips or directions to help me conquer this idea?

I, myself, have only grilled 2 times before but loved it and would love to become better at it!

Thanks for any help!

Is the "grill" real fuel or gas? If you are going to do the ribs as real BBQ, I can help with a nice rub and a mop if you choose to use one.

No explaination necessary! That is a stick burner! Are you sure you want to fire it for a couple slabs of ribs?

I made a very yummy seasoned pork loin and potatoes on it a couple days ago, I just put the charcoal on that left compartment and cooked them in there.

What kind of wood do you have available? I usually try to load my smoker when I use it as some woods can be expensive and getting the biggest bang for the money is a good idea.

Do you have a chimney starter?

Do I have to use wood instead of charcoal? Is the wood what makes it smoke?
