I have been buying wood splits in bags here for years. They are all hardwood. This bag is a mixture of red oak, hickory, and pecan. They sell these at the grocery stores & big box stores around here in the winter for $5.49 per bag. In the spring if they have any left it goes for $2-$3 per bag. I usually buy a few bags in the spring & I have wood all year. Here's the bag I buy.
I'm going to cut up these 2 red oak splits today.
Get out the chop saw.
These are the different sizes I cut them into. Thin for the Smoke Vault, thicker for the 14.5 WSM, and the large one will be used in the 18.5 & 22.5 WSM's.
This is what I cut today from those 2 splits.
These larger ones are in my shed for storage.
Here's where I store the splits.
The best part is when I empty out the dust bag, I have free sawdust for the Amazen.
Thanks for looking, hope you can take advantage of this.
