    I'm really wanting to try some wood that I can't get around here but I don't want to pay 25.00 to ship 3 small bags of chips. That's the best deal I've found so far. I know USPS offers a standard rate box but I can't seem to find anyone who uses that.

    I'm looking for apple, pecan, alder or just about anything other than hickory and mequite, which is plentiful around here.

    Any help is much appreciated.

    I will ship you a reasonable amount of apple for the cost of packaging and shipping. Thru UPS store here... they MAY have a bit high a rate, but the wood is free :{)

    Then just use the flat rate box.

    $8.90 gets you about 8 lbs of chunks!

    My bad....I don't want 20lbs.

    That shipping was the best I could find for 3 small bags...1/2 cubic foot of assorted wood in each. Kinda high so I bailed.

    Shipping rates can be an issue, flat box rates are the best WHEN you can gwet them. Good luck my friend. For good selction try http://www.barbecuewood.com/StoreFront.bok, you can check shipping before you buy.

  15. Cabela's shipping is usually based on how much you spend, unless it's oversize.

    Orders under $25 are only $4.95!
    $25.01 - $50.00 = $7.95!
    $50.01 - $75.00 = $9.95
    $75.01 - $100.00 = $10.95

    Here's their wood products:

    http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/te...pod&id=0058845

    Sometimes they have coupon codes--I got my Masterbuilt Smoker shipped for just $8.95--the coupon code was a $2.95 Shipping Special, plus $6 for oversize.

    They also have both apple & pecan pellets for $17.95 for 20lbs, alder too, or in smaller 2lb bags of wood chips for $4.99 (Mesquite, Hickory, Apple, Cherry, Alder.)

    Also check Amazon. I bought Cameron's Wood Chips in a couple flavors and if the items are actually sold & shipped by Amazon & not a 3rd party, then shipping is free on orders of $25 or more.

    On ebay, look for those vendors that ship by Priority Mail. They have 2 different size flat rate boxes, one around $9.xx and another around $12.95.

    Hope this helps.

    Try www.mainegrillingwoods.com. Free shipping. Never ordered from them but my buddy did and he's happy! He got a three pack of chunks (black cherry, apple and sugar maple I think) for $27.00. HAven't seen the bags so I don't know how big they are but like I said he is very happy with it.
