Default Anyplace to get mesquite Abilene to Lubbock?

As the title says , does anyone know where I can get a small amount of mesquite for smoking/grilling?

I am heading to New Mexico and promised our guide last year that I would bring him some mesquite. The dummy that I am, I forgot to load it in the truck! Surely someone sells it along the way. Cisco is my next town.

Just need a small amount, maybe one row across the bed of the pickup. Thanks for the offer, but I donít have the time to veer off too far from my route. Trying to make Clovis tonight. Got started late! 😩 I may just have to buy him a bag of mesquite chunks at Academy!

I’m 20 miles west of Abilene, 3 miles north of I20. I have 4 or so pieces that are around 18-24” long and probably 10” in diameter. Probably some scattered smaller pieces, not sure on that though. I’m pulling into the house now and I’ll check.

There’s a place in north Frankford in Lubbock that sells mesquite. Normally I’d help you out if I had any stocked right now.

Yeah, that was from a huge ~4' diameter oak that broke off during a storm. My splitter was loaned out for awhile, then it would not start, then I got lazy and it rotted. Burned it in a pile!

Thanks! I was well down the road when I realized that I had forgotten to load the mesquite. He just wanted to have a sampling to try. If he likes the flavor, I will haul him a larger load next year.

Thanks for the offer. It was spur of the moment when I realized I forgot the mesquite, and I just remembered the great TBH network, and sure enough, it came through for me! Thanks again, Keegan (Punche51)!!!

Shane, we are coming back the northern route through Amarillo down 287.

Nice! Enjoy the mountains and hopefully the river flows have subsided some but still better than last year. We fished the Conejos in mid-August and it wasn't much more than a summer creek in Texas. I can't wait to hit the Cimarron after I get back home to Clayton next week.
