LENNY, don't buy the pecan...there's an ad up now for some for free near downtown tampa http://tampa.craigslist.org/hil/zip/1107861732.html
I don't think I'll have time to pick any up. Definitely let me know about the mangrove guy, I've heard the same thing about smoking fish. All the old timers talk of smoking mullet with mangrove being the best. I can't tell you how many times I've been kayaking and seen a piece of dead mangrove and thought about grabbing it, but the fines aren't worth the risk.
