    I was just wondering if anyone knows of a source for pecan wood here in Oklahoma. I'd really like to try some on some ribs.
     
  2. There are a lot of pecan orchards in SE Kansas in and around Chetopa. If you're ever up and around Grand Lake you might want to venture a little further North and inquire around there.

    We have 2 pecan trees I haul branches out every week to the curb
    OK is lousy with pecan trees

    Thanks, guys. I still have family in Georgia, so maybe I'll hit them up to send me some pecan chips. I was just hoping to find a local source.

    There are a lot of pecan orchards around--especially in the Tulsa area and points east and north. There is a saw mill just east of Tulsa on 412 (south side of the road) just before you get to the navigation channel. I've purchased 2" (full dimension) pecan planks for my lowboy trailer. I'm sure they'd still have some--probably all the dust/chips you'd want, too.

    Sorry, I don't have a number for them. But, if you're ever in the area.....

    Thanks, Dirt Guy. I have a cousin that lives in Tulsa, and he and his daughter come down here every couple of weeks or so. So maybe I can ask him to look for me.

    Don't know if you have Academy sports around you , but they allways have pecan chips at the ones in Florida. 1.99 a bag. They may have them online?

    Delarosa...would you call me & tell me your source... Academy has some but it's 11.00 for a 1.5 cu ft. bag... Horizon outa Perry Ok has 2 cu ft bags for 18.00 & barbeque everything sells the same bag from Horizon for 25 dollars...and as far as I'm concerned that's highway robbery... especially when I can burn that up in 1 cooking. I want a pickup load which is about a rick I think.  Thanx  Jeff    405-219-9974
     

  12.   I cut this load at a jobsite I worked at last year.  I had a huge pile going from my buddy that was working for a tree service.  I have been giving it away.  Im not sure whats left out there, but there may be enough for you to come get if you are not too far from seminole. I do know that there are some big pieces that would have to be split.  I will take a picture of the pile and post it tomorrow.

    BTW... that load was a rick!
     
  17. I wonder what they are calling "premium pecan"?

    Well the rick I bought is all uniform cut length & diameter and I know this company sells to major restaurants in OKC... I've looked at the wood and felt like it was good looking stuff. I understand what your saying... there's alot of people out there that tell you it's pecan and it's totally something different. I took a bag of Western Wood Pecan with to do some comparison.
