    If your looking for a harsh, almost cancer inducing smoke flavor, try Trex or Pressure Treated.

    Nope, but you can't beat the original Head Country sauce. Just had some last night on the chicken I grilled on my gas grill with no wood. :p

    sure it has a flat response, and sure it has a lot of detail, and yes, it has good and clear lows. But is it enjoyable to listen to? Does it make you grin ear to ear? That’s what really matters.

    Small amount of White Oak blended with your choice of wood will leave a smile.
    Its pretty mild but worth it.
    Distinct taste.
    I like it with alittle pecan.
    Always the minority wood in my smoker.
    It adds some character (for the best).

    still don't know what you are talking about.
    I started the thread off saying I don't like mesquite then asked what others thought about mesquite wood.
    think you are reading something into it that's not there.
    trying to start an argument?

    I got the Green mountain smoker with WiFi. It seems to be a solid smoker.

    What turned me off was the guy was trying to up sale me a smoke box. I was thinking of whole time. Am I not buying a smoker? Why the **** do I need a smoke box?

    Anyhow. I got the Green Mountain Davey Crocket. Still new so will take me time to learn. One thing is for sure. I am not trying expensive cuts on this.

    Oak is a standard with me...plentiful and good burner. Typically use oak with some hickory. Will add fruit woods and alter levels of hickory depending on the meat. I do like the addition of some mesquite when burning beef.

    how many of you smoke with mesquite wood and why? I can't stand it.
    my go to woods are hickory, oak, and pecan.
    have yet to try fruit woods such as peach and apple.

    I'm like you, I don't care for mesquite so much. It always seems to overpower the flavor of what I am smoking. In my Kamado Joe, I usually use peach wood and sometimes a little hickory too. My wife doesn't like a real strong smokey taste, so I only want about 2 hours of smoke, even during a long, 12-15 hour cook.
