I have learned that you can definitely over smoke with Mesquite and get a real bitter steak
On the grill, a small handful in a tray for a gentle smoke flavor.
In the smoker, I just received some Mesquite blend pellets I want to try on some beef jerky and a test brisket.
But, "moderation" definitely seems to be the key!
