Subject: Lump vs Briquette Charcoal ??

I posted a msg a few days ago regarding my first use of my Brinkmann Cimmaron Smoker and how I tried straight wood firing with hickory and that the meat came out too smokey. I am pleased to announce that this weekend I tried my second attempt and was very successful using charcoal with adding mesquite wood chips. I cooked a round steak and some chicken pieces that turned out great and were enjoyed by ourselves and neighbours.

My question is what do people prefer to use, lump natural wood charcoal or briquette charcoal like Kingsford? I noticed on the Smoke Ring search a brand of natural lump charcoal under brand name Maple Leaf. Is lump charcoal the way to go, and where is a good local source to buy it in Ottawa area? Also, has anyone tried making their own lump charcoal? I found a link describing a method to make your own charcoal using a drum to control the burning. I have a couple of cord of mixed hardwood including hickory and maple, that I and thinking about experimenting with making my own charcoal. I live in the country, so the smoke generated will not annoy the neighbours.
