Well mesquite is a lot more dense and does burn hotter than most other woods. It was one of the preferred fuels of the frontier blacksmith if that tells you anything! LOL! Because of it's heat generation it makes an excellent grilling wood and if you're smoking with it you will use less than other woods.
