Smoking Woods

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi all,
I'm located in central SC and am having to purchase some of my wood from places like EBay, etc. Doing it that way can get a bit pricey since I do a lot of smoking. Walmart has hickory and mesquite for a reasonable price, but woods like apple, cherry and pecan are not readily available. Anyone have any ideas as to where I can find these woods at a more reaonable price?
thanks and happy smokin'!

They also have a few other woods available, so check it out if ya want.

PM me your address, I will send you some pecan chunks. I live in okahoma, pecan trees are very common around here.

But red is better of the two. Usually denser than white so it burns longer. Oak gives the meat a great color.

Where to fine wood. On our trips to NC from Florida, I just pick up Pecan wood from off the ground. Plenty of oaks on my property and some good cherry trees on the neighbors. Just open your eyes, you'll be surprised at the wood you will find.

Not to nit pick but white oak is a denser wood than red. White has a density factor or 47.2 and red 44.2. It (white) also has a higher BTU factor.

Good wood source

I buy my wood through doitbest.com. 10# bags of chunks for under $8.49. No delivery or sales tax. You just have to pick it up at a local building supply store.
