I am curious about woods used in comps. Down in South Texas, Mesquite is king. A lot of cookers are soaking the wood or using green wood to get even more, heavy smoke. At home, we like Oak for our brisket, but in comps mesquite seems to be the norm.

If you go to central or north Texas, are they using mesquite, or, do they use other woods?

Here, around Houston, it tends to be either oak, pecan, or a mixture of the two.

We use 100% oak.

I even recently got a Costco membership thinking I would be buying briskets from there. They have no selection, at least every time that I've been. They only carry choice packers, big ones. Never seen a Prime or a flat there. It pretty frustrating. One time I went and they didn't even have briskets!

There is a Meat market on Parker almost to 45. It's called Hershe's they should have what your looking for.
