    Besides the two types that are usually available at big box stores (hickory and Mesquite), can anyone suggest a source online or anywhere else I can look even locally?

    Hey Bloke...

    If you have an Ace or True Value / Do it Best hardware store, they have one of the best seasonal displays of smokers, wood chunks, grills, accessories, etc, etc. Check them out.

    Online, google "smoking wood chunks", and i got this:

    Results 1 - 10 of about 142,000 for smoking wood chunks. (0.13 seconds). There's some reading for you!

    Also, if you can keep an eye on craig's list, there is always wood in my area that you can pick up on the cheap...Earlier this year, I got this truck load of apple for free! That's the right price!

  5. Go to www.gassmoker.com they have many types of wood at $1.50 for a 5lb bag and the shipping is FREE! I have ordered from them numerous times and they ship like the next day.

    Not sure where you are located.
    In the Kansas City area check out the Ace Hardware stores.
    They have chips and chunks at a good price. Surprising selection.
    I stock up when I visit.

    Ditto that, but I'm from the Show-me state as well. Can anyone outside the mid-west confirm Ace Hardware (Weslakes, around here)?

    I think you guys are reading it wrong.
    It's $1.50 per pound, so a 5lb. bag is $7.50

    Actually the Gander Mountain here has a great selection of wood chunks. Cabelas is another place you may want to look. But up here it is a seasonal item. Haven't been in there in awhile but I am guessing right now there isn't much of a selection.

    Academy also carries pecan wood which is mostly what I use, but I get it for free as I do hickory and oak. I don't use mequite.

    $1.50 a lb. That would be $45. [​IMG]

    Any specialty shop that sells wood stoves, pellet stoves, etc. usually carries chunk wood as well, but be prepared to pay a premium. Where exactly are you located?
