As a Pellet Guy--I gotta ask.
Blended Mesquite or Pure Mesquite?

I prefer (in general) blended fruit wood pellets for poultry (and pork) and stronger blended hickory and mesquite for more robust meats like Beef.

Pure Mesquite will overpower the meat in a heartbeat, especially at lower temps.
Blended Mesquite when use at higher temps (above 325ish) would probably work.

Let us know how it comes out.
