Men of Mesquite's signature rubs, marinades & sauces in use with our open-flame grill or in our sealed slow cookers bring out the unique flavors in every piece of meat we cook. Over the open-flame grill we use primarily Mesquite charcoal to help bring out the true grilled flavor only wood or charcoal can bring.  In our Southern Style Slow Cookers we use a variety of naturally aged dry wood from hickory to apple to peach or oak, we blend the woods to complement the flavors of Beef, Pork or Chicken every blend is.....

 different because every variety of meat requires different balance of wood flavor. 

Call us and Experience what a balance of true BBQ flavors can bring !
