Frontier Mesquite Lump

Picked up a bag of this stuff last night at Brookshire's. Anyone ever use it? How is it?

Have not heard of Frontier. Have been grabbing small bags of El Gallito mesquite from the local market. It is at least pretty good size. Currently a personal favorite. Burns into a light paper like ash and has a good flavor. Going to see if I can find Frontier next time I get out as briquettes aren't doing it for me much anymore.

I got a few bags of the mesquite and a couple bags of the lump earlier this year. The lump was ok although there are a few brands I prefer. OCC, Wicked, Royal Oak, etc... The mesquite was not my favorite. I detected an off flavor, almost like burnt paper, to the butts I did with it. Also, it didnt seem to burn as hot as the other brands that I use.

Its all personal preference in the end as a buddy of mine likes it. NakedWHiz gave it an average I think. I have started buying all my charcoal at GFS. It appears they re-brand Royal Oak and I am liking the fact that they have it all the time. Unlike the big boxes here that only have charcoal until July 4th.
