I'm making smoked kielbasa for the first time and I have a question about salt. Do I need to use table salt or kosher salt?

Non- iodized (kosher) salt is your best bet. The iodine contained in (most) table salt can cause discoloration in some recipes. If you don't have a choice it won't hurt you.

Thanks Bob. So, if a receipe calls for 2.5 grams of salt I can use 2.5 grams of kosher salt?

Yes Measuring by weight is the most accurate way.

Actually, any non-iodized salt will do.
Kosher is fine, but there are less expensive salts that'll work just fine too.
And yeah, weigh measurements are best.
