Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

What's the story with this stuff?  I bought a 20lb bag at Lowes after reading the Naked Whiz review saying it was all lumber mill scrap.  What I got looks like mostly if not entirely tree parts (limb pieces with bark)...not scraps of milled wood.  It also looks enough like mesquite (and the Made in Mexico doesn't give me any warm fuzzies) that I'm afraid to use it.  We really dislike mesquite flavor, so I'm reluctant to cook anything of importance over it.

Seems like both here and on Amazon, the reviews for this stuff are pretty consistently the point that I get the impression some people would rather cook their stakes in the oven if it's a choice between that or Cowboy.

For those who have used it recently (especially if you picked it up at Lowes), I'm curious what your take is on it?  Also, if anyone knows, is this mesquite or something else, I'd love to know.
