  1. got my smoker " snp " [​IMG] , got my meat [​IMG] , got my tunes [​IMG] , got my beer [​IMG][​IMG] ..............but i cant find any wood [​IMG] ..... i need help i would like to know where you fellow Okie's are getting your wood for the smoker [​IMG][​IMG] i have tried wally world , Crest , and even Tinker Air Force Base .

    it has cost me more for the wood then the meat i have smoked.

    there has to be a cheaper place " besides my neighbors apple tree [​IMG] "

    i have a old electric style so it easy to get wood for it but now i have the new "used" snp and would like to use more wood then Charcoal.

    thanks in advance [​IMG] !!!!!

    Your fellow smoker , Bob

    Many grocery stores carry smaller bags.

    Look in the classifieds in the paper for firewood--somebody should have an idea of what kind of wood they're selling.

    Ace hardware carries it here in Tulsa.

    Atwood's, maybe? TSC? Whatever's in your neck of the woods is worth checking out.

    check in the phone book under firewood, I got a 1/4 rick last month from there. tree trimmers will go out to do a job, then bring the wood back to sell from their business.

    Hello from Ponca City-try any city park service, they are always trimming trees. As for chips, i thik Wal Mart may be seasonal. we have a discount foods here where they have chips & chunks. Good Luck!
     
  5. What I typically do here in Michigan, is go to the apple orchards after the apple pickin' season is over. I went to a local orchard once and asked if they had any apple word for sale and they said $30 for a box. I was hard pressed for some apple wood at the time so I thought, "just this once I will buy a box of for this outrageous price." What I though I was buying was a milk crate size box of wood. What they brought me took a fork-lift to bring out and filled the truck bed to capacity.

    Check local orchards is my suggestion.

    Do you know anyone living in the country? On a Farm or Ranch? Maybe just go ask a landowner if they have any unwanted Oak or Mesquite[​IMG]

    In your area of O.K. you should be surrounded by good wood.
    Just a thought.........
    Good Luck and
