I don't like mesquite, I have used it a lot for grilling and even there, dislike it. Enough that if I am in a place that uses it for all of their meats, I will pass on eating meat at that meal.
I did try using it as a smoking wood, in small amounts, back when I though mesquite meant Texas BBQ. I didn't like it then either. There is something to the taste or aroma, that just doesn't sit at all well for me.
I'm feeling bearish, and I'm packing a Wusthof Grand Brisket slicer from MABA
