Hickory in Orlando area?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Does anyone know of a good supplier of hickory for an offset smoker in the central Florida Orlando area?


Just got an almost new Lang 36 off Craigslist, picking it up Friday!!  Need to stock up on the split logs now.

You could try Walmart for hickory chunks, but for logs you'd probably have to advertise in the classifieds or Craigslist or other mediums.

Winter Springs Here...


Check CL for guys cutting down trees. I usually get my chunks locally at Depot etc.. I have also ordered Peach off Ebay and so forth.


I do not know of anyone locally to help ya out with sticks.......

I would check with your local tree companies they should havesome or where you can get some splits. That's what I have done in Jax area.

Check the classified ads in your newspaper.


There's almost always an ad for oak by the truckload down here.


They will deliver also. Not sure they would go as far as Orlando.

I made friends with some one in the panhandle.


I use oak as primary for my Kingfisher rotisserie trailer rig and pecan or hickory splits or chunks for the "other" flavors.

Thanks for the tips guys - didn't think about using oak for the heat and just chunks for flavor, like the idea a lot.  I ended up getting the Klose 20x42 instead of the Lang, so looking forward to firing it up this weekend!  Thanks again all.

Since Pignut Hickory and Mockernut Hickory are native trees to Florida I would think you would be able to get it easily. Talk to tree trimming company's, allot of times they will help you out. I have a buddy who burns wood, and I'm always helping him out gathering wood from trees company's have cut. Saves them from having to haul it off, so it's a win win. However you gotta get it picked up quick as some customers of tree service don't want it laying around, and get antsy thinking the tree service just left it. Since I'm off allot of times I'm there when they are cutting.


The burn ole for heat along with chunks is another good idea saves the hassle of gathering, and storing.
