Cowboy charcoal is cutoff wood pieces and burns quickly leaving no coal base, don't like it either, Royal Oak would be a better choice if you can find it.

What cooker are you using?
If the pics showed up it is the brinkman gourmet smoker. So royal oak hardwood charcoal mixed with some kingsford would be good? I would either use wood chunks or chips

When I came up with the method I was using a WSM which gives you a lot more control than the Brinkman's version. A briquette charcoal like Kingsford or DuraFlame work much better than your last choice. You are going to have to use fire size for pit temp control.

Ribs can be cooked hotter, say pit temp of 275. Hickory, pecan or fruitwoods are go choice for ribs.

Also just as a side, when you are in smoke cooking you become less senitive smoke flavor, it is a normal reaction, do others feel the same way about the smoke flavor?

Every one liked the ribs but me. They tasted way funny and to charcoally, if thats a word. I did use mesquite wood chips though. But i highly doubt that was the problem. Im also trying to find out a way to make one batch of fuel last 3 or so hours but whats his name said that is hard to accomplish with my smoker..

thanx
