You can burn corrugated cardboard with it IMHO,or fresh pine needles might make a welcome change.
Use the trunk,if it has plenty of sap.
It won't have any effect.
I've heard that Dollar store ketchup,is better with it than branded[probably just a rumor]
When it finishes,I'd be sure the "drugstore cowboys" were wearing their hightop aerobic shoes,rather than "manly footwear" ,when I raved how it was the best brisket I ever tasted.
Out there in Plano,you aren't far from Bill and Barb Milroy -the Texas RibRangers,one of the great comp teams of all time.
Find their rubs and sauces,all over your area.
You sure won't want to mention a Cookshack person cooked that way.
Just a couple of thoughts.
