What kind of wood is this? Cowboy charcoal logs...

    I saw this stack of firewood outside my local grocery store here in Detroit today.

    Rather surprised to see that it was from Kentucky - Woodmont brand from Cowboy Charcoal... Less than $5.00 for over 20 lbs. (a pretty good price, no?) so I figured I'd pick up a bag and try it out in the double barrel smoker I built - even though it is snowing here today! lol...

    Any idea on what kind of wood this is?? Unfortunately I am utterly clueless when it comes to identifying woods...

    Well, between my wife and I we think you scored either pignut hickory or pecan. No matter which it is, if that is what you have you got a very nice deal, my friend! Let us know how it smelled and smoked!

    The grain on second photo is straight like hickory in my opinion.Looks like its aged for smoking as is-nice score.
