Cruising Craigslist and a local guy has 100lbs of mesquite splits he brought up from Texas. He wants $1.50 a lb! So $150 for the lot. Yikes! I can get half cord of red oak for that!
I am considering making him a offer as I have never had the chance to cook with mesquite before other than the stale bagged chunks you buy at Home depot or something. I have never got any flavor from those chunks. Wood does go stale.
Anyhow I don't want to insult the guy with a low ball offer (I was thinking like $50 for the lot) but I really would like to give some a try.
