Order Wood?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Here in South Dakota, as I am sure many other places as well, we are stuck to using what is available in our area. Here is South Dakota that means a lot of apple and hickory (because thats what they sell in the store) maybe every once in a while you will run into someone who might have an oak tree or what not but not very often. So I am curious how some of you get ahold of more "exotic" woods to smoke with? Do you order it? I would love to try some sugar maple but up here we don't get any of that at all and I love the taste of pecan but that is impossible to to find.

If you do order it from somewhere, where do you go and how much are you paying?

In opinion you don't need exotic woods. If you have hickory and apple you got it made. Hickory is the #1 wood.

I just ordered some wood chunks from www.charcoalstore.com . Arrives today so I can't tell yo umuch more than they seem to have a large variety and the prices were cheaper than some of the other places I checked. Which is why I ordered it there. I can't wait to try the bourbon barrel chunks on brisket this weekend.

I have ordered from http://www.barbecuewood.com/-strse-B...Categories.bok and been very happy with them.

Also you might try http://www.gassmoker.com/woodpile_new/woodpile1.htm

Good luck.

You are right I don't NEED it but I would like to try other things and see how it flavors.

Here is another option, but looks like they might prefer larger orders:


A phone call might provide more answers than I can.

As to your SD comment, about 10 years ago a buddy of mine from Rapid City was in the area and we were at a golf outing. Out of the blue, he yaps, "Holy $%#@&%$#, That's Oak"! He was looking at a decorative split rail fence. I didn't know what to say other than, "look around, every tree you see is an oak tree". Take all you want!
