I usually go for at least 8 - and that means the two packs, so 16 bags. At the price they sell them for, you can't beat it. Memorial day and 4th of July.

Finally got tired of disposing of all the ashes from those years and went to Propane.



I do miss the smell and taste, though. I've thought about putting some mesquite chips in the propane grill but haven't done it.
Put a rack under your regular rack and put lava rocks on it. Heat the grill good and hot, sprinkle the mesquite chips over the lava rocks, close the lid for 5 minutes and then throw your food on. The lava rocks are porous and eventually will retain some of the flavor as well.
