Really Frustrated Today.
I'm smoking about 10lbs of chuck on my COS for dinner at my Brother's tonight. My Niece worships my smoked meats and I love to cook for her. She's just an awesome gal but the problem is she gets migraines if I use fruit or oak wood. So bad she has to go to the emergency room. So I told her I would only use mesquite. Well trying to find a decent supply of mesquite in Idaho is a challenge. All the brands of lump I've tried are really stubborn and hard to get burning good. I bought some mesquite logs from a sporting goods place here but the are so dry they burn up in nothing flat. The chunks from Walmart and other places also burn fast because they are small. I'm chasing the temps all over the place. Rant over!
