Mesquite Smoked APA

Since my experiments always turn out so well, I am going to brew a smoked beer. Since I live in Texas, and we use mesquite to smoke our meat, I thought mesquite smoke would work in a beer. I smoked two pounds of grain, and I am only going to use one pound of it in the recipe. I don't want this to be overpowering.
