I like smoked food. That being said I use mesquite occasionally, but looking back at my notes I have never used more than 1.50 oz. of mesquite in the 008. It does give off a strong smoke flavor and I'm probably one of the first that will yell "too smokey". I go light with all my woods.and have never used more than 4.30 oz. at once of anything.
Just a nice trace of smoke works for me. Experiment, keep notes and keep your 08 smokin!
