    Don't you have pecan trees in Tennessee? If not drive across the mountains to the carolinas and to SC or GA for the peach.

    If you have a Gander Mountain near by, try there. I just scored some pecan there last week. Also, if you have a store that refills propane tanks, sells grills, etc., you might want to try there.

    +1 There should be lots of Pecan trees in your area.

    BBQERSDELIGHT has 2# smoke stix, you cut off 1 in. put in your cooker and works just like wood for several hrs. they're inexpensive and you dont have to store wood around, and no ants or other insects. I did'nt see peach, but they have pecan, hickory, etc. just thought this as an option.
  7. Ditto Gander Mountain. I just bought three bags of pecan chunks there.
