Call some cabinet shops in your area. Im a woodworker and we throw away tons of scrap wood. Theres usually alot of alder, oak, maple and cherry. Its free too.

Thats good advice.

Also, do you or someone you know have a chainsaw? Are you willing to do a little work for free wood? Put an add on craigslist and other classifieds ads saying you'll cut down those trees for people in exchange for the wood. I did that on craigslist and a local online classifieds ad and I got a guy with 3 HUGE cherry trees, and just this week I cut down 2 apple trees for a guy. I had a chance at some hickory but I've already got enough hickory because I took down a tree for my brother.

pecan and oak

Hi, I have a lot of pecan wood that is seasoned and is just right for smoking. I have this wood cut up into all size chunks. I have some of it listed on I can make the chunks any size that you want them. I just got in a dump truck load of oak yesterday but it is green wood. I have to cut the oak up with my chain saw, split it with my log splitter, and then make chunks out of it. I am selling the wood chunks for $30.00 for a large size priority box full. The boxes are over stuffed and I have to cut another box up to use some of it to get it packed because I can not get the flaps closed on the boxes. If you or anyone would like some just le me know, Thank you, Jason

If you're looking for a retail outlet, try the Do It Best Centers. They have a great selection of BBQ wood to choose from. They will ship your online orders to the store nearest to you.

I found a pretty good site online that has a great selection of wood for reasonable prices. Shipping isn't bad at all either. . . .

I've bought from a few times I like their products. I have bought their chips and double filet chunks and I like them both.

What kind of smoker do you have?

I've tried many sources and ended up settling on pellets for my smoker.

Also, scavenge local cabinet shops for scraps.

Lots of apple orchards up this way and they have branches for free.

I have purchased apple branch chunks from here

I use them in my propane Smoke Vault. You can find deals if you look. I also bought a box of planks for grillin. You can get a deals on those also. I buy the factory 2nds, they have knots and odd sizes, but who cares.

Here is a site that reviews products. You can search by name for each company and see what they have for sale.

They have some pretty useful info that i have found.
