All of you HEB shoppers,
Anyone use Central Market mesquite lump, and if so, how is it?

I've used it quite a bit, and have no complaints, other than the occasional bag that looked like it was run over by a truck. Lots of smaller pieces. Most bags I've used have a pretty good sized pieces. Never seen any non wood items in any of their bags. Quality stuff.

Have not used that brand but have used their El Arroyo mesquite brand. It's not bad at all. Speaking of small pieces I once saw one their employees shove and push a bag of charcoal on to the shelf. It really didn't' fit but it did after he got done w/it. So I always make sure to get one on the bottom of whatever shelf I'm pulling from..

Picked it up at HEB a couple of times and found it to be okay, but a bit pricey versus my usual brands.
