    i live in FL and i'm looking for some different flavors.

    I know that i can get hickory, and mesquite at my local hardware store in chunk and chips. And i can get maple, cherry, apple at bass pro shop in chips.

    And was wondering if anyone has anyone ever order wood from offline?

    There are several listings right now for various woods for smoking on ebay. I would not think twice about ordering from them. One of the guys on there has been selling wood chunks for some time now, has great feedback. Check it out, I've seen boxes of wood go for 2 bucks with 8 bucks for shipping, but they are packed. Worth a look anyhow. Or see if someone oh here is willing to do an exchange with you.

    Living in Florida I know you must have lots of fruit orchards around.
    Go to a local orchard or farm and you should be able to get apple, peach, orange, and any other wood that they grow in Florida for great deals.
    I go to a local farm/orchard and get great deals on peach, apple, cherry and oak.

    Right on FIU. Also you are virtually surrounded by oak and citrus wood in Orlando/Winter Park area. Any time those storms move thru, be on the lookout. I lived there for 50 years, never had an issue getting wood.

    I found that doitbest.com is realy reasonible. You can order from them and have it delivered it to a local store. They are back east, but I can pick it up a local hardware store. No tax or shipping. $8 plus change for 10#'s of chunks.[​IMG]

    I have a propane store near me that carriers about 20 differant kinds of wood for sale and you can even get large amounts of woods from some local guys too.

    I'll check kiss/st cloud gas place next to my shop thanks for the idea!

    I'll send you a pm.

    I know that i should be able to get just about any kind of citrus down here, just started looking. trying to let my father-in-law let me cut down his dead tangalo tree.

    Thank you guys for all the suggestions!

  11. I have bought from www.gassmoker.com several times. It is in Alabama and the shipping is free. If I remember right its $1.50 a lb. They have hickory, oak, pecan, wild cherry, peach,walnut, and more that I don't remember.

    I picked up some Oak, Red Oak, Maple and Hickory not that long ago. I put a "Wanted" ad on Craigslist and within a couple days I had more offers to deliver than I knew what to do with. Had a half cord of all four delivered for $70.

    Craigslist is a great idea. Just found Oak, Hickory, and Pecan pretty reasonable.
  15. I'm in FL too. Craigslist is a good place to look, but you gotta stay on top of it unless you want Oak or Hickory. I found 1/4 truck load of Cherry for $50.00 a couple of months ago on there :)
    I just ordered some 5 Lb bags of Apple chunks from the local Ace Hardwear. $7.50/bag and no shipping... They say they can also get Cherry and other stuff. Whatever you do, don't order from Home Depot, their shipping is OUTRAGEOUS!!!
    Hope that helps [​IMG]
