Picked up 2 truckloads of black acacia. It has a beautiful and extremely tight grain. Would make beautiful lumber. Anyway, I have read up on it and people have said it has a similar flavor to mesquite but I'm wondering if any of you have had luck with it. I'm not gonna be using until next summer, but if it's horrible, it'll make great firewood. 

Thanks guys!

Man I would have to buy a lathe and try my hand at turning some of that. At least plane some and join it for cutting boarda or something.

Mesquite is a member of the acacia family.  I keep trying to get my hands on some.  It should be wonderful.

Acacia is one of the greatest smoking woods, in my opinion, for all kinds of meat. Since I began this thread, I've smoked beef, pork, poultry, fish, even quick smokes on vegetables, and the flavor has been incredible. Highly recommend this type of wood to cook with. Lighter flavor than its more well known mesquite cousin.

It's probably the best smoke for sausages and ribs!
