Picked this up the other day, haven't found any reviews posted on this site before or on wiz.  Purchased 3 / 40 lb bags $10.00 a bags in LOS ANGELES area. LOGS of lumps that are just unusable without a hammer. Anyone ever used this before? It burns ok, smell is stronger then RO or BGE brands, ash not too bad.

    I bought something very similar a couple of years ago. Huge logs too.

    That's mesquite and that's fairly normal for mesquite.  Bust up the logs and use them.

    Never got a bag like that, I usually get lump on the other side....tiny pieces are usually the problem.   

    Since I switched to using Wicked Good Weekend Warrior I haven't had any complaints, no tiny lump and the big pieces aren't so big you can't use them.  Until I have a problem with it I'm going to stick with them.

    $10 a bag for mesquite.  I'd be all over that.
