I had to test it first!
thats just messed up dude! I am almost out of the wood you shipped and then I see this picture. just plain wrong to tease a fellow BBQ man...
BTW, a response is posted
I have found another wood that leaves a really good flavor also. You might try using pecan if you can find that. I don't know if pecan trees grow up there where you are located, but if you can find some, you might try it. The flavor is a bit milder, but it is still good. The thing is that pecan will need to season a little longer than mesquite.
Yep, pecan is good smoking. We don't have much (any) in Texas, but my parents always told me that beech is the best for smoking.
Mesquite for beef. I've tried the apple, pecan, oak thing and just don't see any improvement. Usually a decline in satisfaction.
PS. Chicken is meant to be fried.

Good evening gents. Hope all is well.
As always with you and that grin, I love it. I got carried away again the other night about carry or no carry and mouthed off. Wife read it and says I should not write the things I do and upset anyone, with what or how I did or do. This is for you sweety! John Thanks guys, you know what I mean right
I haven't read a post from you yet that would upset me. And if it did, I reckon the problem might be with me. Don't sweat it.
I second SJMB.
If you feel better telling war stories, then by all means tell 'em.
I await your next episode.
If you need to keep 'em to yourself, then please do.
If it helps you heal, it's all good!
I speak for myself on this matter, but I'll listen to you all day long if you want to talk about it. I love to hear people relate their experiences both good and bad. Sometimes it reminds me that as bad as I may think things are for me, someone else has had it worse, or may be having it worse. I will never ask you to disclose anything that could get you into trouble for telling it, but I can listen and keep things to myself. If I think I can offer some guidance, then I will do so, but I will usually preclude it with something like "take this with a grain of salt," or "No, I don't know what you are going through (went through)," or something like that. Those veterans who have had it worse than I did, and there are plenty of them still alive, (John, you are one) I keep you guys in my prayers every day.
You my friend ; how you got so wise and smart is that you listen and also have the ability to read between the lines, I am grateful for being alive today and being even allowed to voice my opinion hear on this site with some real good guys, and Vets and always respectful and say and do what they mean. I am loosening up finnally after all these years and have all you guys and Randy to thank for that. You all ave made me see that times do change and people and the way they treat others who have really no choice in the matter in my era, except to be a coward and use daddys money for college or run to Canada. Rather than be an american and make damn well sure that war does not ever come to this country and fight on this soil. As 911 showed a lot of people what that would be like and also showed a lot of people the kind of everyday heroes sitting alongside of you on an airplane, in a cops uniform, firefighter, and so on. Never again, I say, never again, my Mom has enough flags, as she told me easter. I agree. Thanks Guys and Randy, Vaq etc,you know who you are. JOhn I got to go till tommorrow, later
