I agree, Granular is the way to go, I would recommend following a four step program like Scott's, or Vigarro. If you have a local farmers co-op I would definetly check it out. The local one here, Intermountain Farmers Association or IFA has a four step program specific to local soils and temps, for about 1/2 the price of Scott's.
Don't use a drop spreader!!!!!
Your lawn will look like Tony the tiger's back side!! Use a broadcast spreader apply at 1/2 the rate going one direction then 1/2 rate again going the other direction, this will prevent striping.
