    That will work. I mix a strong wood and liter wood all the time.

    Those woods will work.  I prefer mesquite, a somewhat heavy flavor for my briskets.

    Finished product a little over seasoned but good

    Thanks probably the best smoke I put. On one but a little over seasoned
     
  15. Looks excellent! Take the seasoning ratio on this one and dial it back by a 1/4 and smoke another one.

    The great thing about smoking is that even the ones that aren't perfect are still tasty!
