Al, we have quite a bit of mesquite here and even though you would think it would be cheap to buy, it isn't. It is cheaper to purchase than the other wood and right now it's selling for $200 a cord. Still TOO much especially when you have to buy over two cords. We burned between three/four cords last winter.
DB, I'm beside myself right now from your offer! Hubby just went to sleep, but in the morning during our coffee, I will certainly pass this generous information on to him. I would love to get to Trinidad and do this before it gets busy at work. I will let you know forsure - Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!
