I have used mesquite lots, and love it lots.

I just bought a bag from WMT, and it seems to have a chemical smell to it.
I have not noticed this with others that I have bought. Most I have was in a mesh bag. This was in a plastic bag.

Is this normal?

That is what I buy, no problem. But I get mine at home depot. Char Broil brand.

When I used ta buy it, came in plastic bags, never noticed any chemical smell.

I thin I'd try somthin different, although if when ya burn it it smells like clean smoke (theres a good one fer ya!), it should be alright.

Its goin back to WMT. I love mesquite, but this is horrible.

Maybe I will find something better at home depot.

The chips I buy always are in plactic but never have anything but wood smell. Maybe they spilled something on it.
