i'm in rockford, just northeast of grand rapids. i'm using lazarri mesquite and hard wood. my supplier is "herman's boy" right is rockford. prices are pretty good - right around $13/20lbs. i mix the two for most of what i cook.
welcome! you'll love this cult. i've got the large and my brother has the xl. really recommend the large unless you're cooking for a big family or planning on frequent large cooks. less fuel and quicker heat up with the lbge. i'd like to add a medium or small for the occasional need for more (or less) cooking space and for the ability to take an egg along on vacation or even across town to a cookout.
