do you have wood?

  1. where can I get all the good woods you all smoke with? I live in FL so I mostly smoke with Oak or Hickory that I can buy from homedepot or walmart. I do like the Oak but I'm to sure I really like the hickory a hole lot and I really don't like Mesquite . I would like to try some apple and maybe some cherry wood or any other wood that is good.

    Make buddy buddy with a local tree trimmer. Most of those guys would happily allow you to take whatever you can haul. If you feed them well, they will be on the lookout for what kind of wood you need.

    I buy a lot of my wood at a local place that sells wood to restaurants. Their chunks are nice solid fist sized pieces that come in a large "onion" bag, and they last me a long time.

    I can also pick up a nice sized bag of chunks at Ace Hardware...they have a surprising variety of woods and a decent seasonal display of grills, smokers, and other goodies.

    I have recently been scanning craigs list for larger quantities, as I want to build a stick burner for competitions. I stumbled into a truck load of apple wood for free...I just had to go pick it up! If you don't look on craigs list, you should.

    There are a lot of places on the web that sell different varieties of smoking woods...just google smoking chunks and see what pops up.

    Ebay has a lot of people that sell wood as well. In a pinch you could entertain buying something from there.

    Good luck,

    I missed letting you guys around st pete know I was driving down at the beginning of March this year because of the crash on smf. Have some apple and cherry stocked up. I'll see what I get this year and maybe next March we can trade a box of apple / cherry for some orange / pineapple wood.
    Tried hinting that I'd like some on another thread , but my wife and Mom just left st pete beach yesterday .
    Hope we can work it out next year.
  15. Ill trade a box of fruit wood (apple, cherry, plum, or peach) or some filbert, walnut, oak, ash, alder, vine maple or soft maple for some mangrove.

    I would be love to trade with you. Pinapples don't really grow on trees but I can definitely hook you up with plenty of orange/lemon/lime/citrus wood.
