I really like red oak or mesquite on my briskets.

If you have a buckees gas station around they usually have the b and b post oak and mesquite in bags.

I've never tried mesquite but do use hickory a good bit.
Any Ace Hardware stores nearby ? They usually keep a good selection in stock

Any oak is a suitable replacement for post oak. Mesquite is definitely a much stronger and far different flavor. Not saying good or bad, just different. I like to toss a little cherry in with the oak for color

thanks all,
I think by the time i get through the pan/sauce stage, my hickory apple blend will barely be noticable. it does give me a reason to tho' a little cherry in there.

Just add more hickory in the charcoal mix. And
start out with smaller pieces in the ash bin to hit it early.

thanks guys,
if i weer doing a packer or flat for slicing I'd get whippy on this one, but since the ends are going to be swimming in goodness eventually, I might just throw some chips in the ash basket of the 560 to add to the profile. maybe cherry just for S&G since i 've never used it.
