Woods from Missouri

  1. I would like to get some wood from local dealers but no one really knows what kinda wood they are cutting down and offering. I know to steer away from pines but how do I find out what kinda woods are common for my area and of those woods are good for smoking?

    MO should have some of the common smoking woods locally...  Oak, Hickory, Cherry...

    I would suggest following craigslist.  Sometimes you can get lucky and someone will post offering a specific type of firewood.  I found one person in Cincinnati area selling cherry wood, and another selling red oak.  Bought a good bit from both and now have a good supply.
