Plum tomatoes are perfect for this cooking method because they are meaty but still contain a lot of moisture. We like the milk flavor of applewood chips, but other types of wood will work–except for hickory, which can be overpowering.Pour a pitcher or margaritas and pair it with a homemade guacamole.
