    Next friday I'm driving down to Datona Beach Fla. Does any one know where I could get some pecan wood not too far off of I-95.We are leaving from Philly around midnight so Sat. morning I should be in the Carolinas.I could even get it on the way home.How much should I pay? I'm not talkin' a truck load.Maybe 50 lbs. Thanks in advance.

    Just bought some from Dillons. Also known as Krogers. 10.00 for what feels to be about 30 lbs. Only my second time with pecan but I do love the flavor and the way it burns.

    If you have an Academy Sports store close by, you can get 1.5 Cu.Ft. bags of Pecan, Hickory or Mesquite for $9.95.

    Like Des said look in a phone book for a Pecan Farm. They would have some pecan around. Probably the cheapest there. Im lucky w/ pecan a farm is only 60 mi away. Good Luck.

    Try to locate a dillons on your trip route and call to see if they have it before you stop. Do a search for dillons and see if they give store locations and phone #'s
    I'm going to call my sister in atlanta and have her find me some and bring it in may when she comes home to visit.

    Good luck

    I looked in my local paper in the classified ads. I picked up what's supposed to be a freshly cut down pecan tree today, filled the bed of my truck. It was in a well established neighborhood one block off a street named "Pecan Orchard Blvd" here in Huntsville.

    I'll post pics of it tomorrow to confirm it really is pecan.

    Thanks

  15. I just picked up a 10 lb bag today at my local Ace Hardware store today for $5.99. They also have hickory, mesquite, apple, and cherry. I got chunks, but they have logs also. Best selection I have seen around here in MO.
