This is good advice! The key to avoiding over smoking is to burn a good, hot fire that will make the wood combust every time you add it, with no smoldering wood which will create creosote. This is true with any wood and as long as you follow the above advice you will get the full benefit of the mesquite flavor without fear of bitterness or overwhelming smoke flavor.
