Wood for smoking in South Louisiana
SmokingMeatForums.com Top Picks
I don't mind splitting wood myself or buying ready to use. The wood just needs to be ready to burn. I know there are tons of wood around my area I'm just looking for a good supplier. What's the difference in the flavor of red and white oak? I need apple as well but will most likely just get apple chunks from academy.
Look on Craigslist, just search firewood and see what pops up. I know there are lots of sellers around here, probably will be there, too. My palette is not refined enough to discern a lot of difference in red and white oak. If I know which wood is being used, I'd probably say I like the slightly more tart flavor of white oak. In a blind taste test, I probably wouldn't notice a difference.
