Some advice needed

I have a source for fresh mesquite wood and I would like to know if there is any special prep I have to be aware of before I start using it to smoke

Welcome!

 

For the mesquite wood, all I do is remove any loose bark and then toss it into the pit.  That's AFTER it's well seasoned (dry).

 

Keep in mind, mesquite has a very heavy flavor and will sometimes over power your food with its flavor.  I'd start with a known neutral type of wood and add a little mesquite and see how the taste goes.  If it's good, but a little lighter flavor than you want, add a bit more mesquite on the next cook.
