since it was nice out here on Sunday, I decided to make some chicken leg quarters with mesquite. I grilled them because it was getting late. Now, when I use 3 good sized hickory chunks when using this method, I get a nice taste of hickory in the chicken. I used mesquite chunks this time and I even used more and I couldn't taste a hint of it at all. Maybe just a SLIGHT hint, but not really noticible. I used about 4 good sized mesquite chunks. If i use chips in a cast iron smoker box, I get the nice mesquite taste. So do I just need to use more mesquite next time?
