When I cook these big steaks I usually throw in a little oak after the initial sear, I thought Id try some mesquite this time, It was a little to bitter for my taste.

    Hey Tim, your steak looks awesome! I am one that loves mesquite, it does have a unique flavor. I find that it mixes well with other smoke woods, you might try adding a little to your usual oak the next time. Also, if you ever have the opportunity to try it mesquite lump charcoal is milder than the smoke wood and has great flavor.
