    Hey All,

    I had read a post somewhere that Home Depot had finally brought in some Apple and Cherry wood chunks and I finally got a chance to go check it out. They always have Hickory and Mesquite chunks but only Apple chips which is what I have had to use. They were 5 lb. bags and I picked up one of each to give them a try. They were labeled Charbroil and the bags are transparent except for the labeling. They looked to be decent size chunks with no shake, just a few small pieces. They were $6.97 a bag, not sure if thats a good price or not. I was just happy to finally get my hands on some Apple chunks and I have been wanting to try the Cherry after reading others results. Hopefully I'll get to smoke something this weekend and I'll report how it went.

    My Home Depot has splits of Hickory, Oak, & Pecan mixed in a 40# bag for $3.99. I bought 5 bags. I just cut them up with my chop saw into 1" slices.

    If you need some Pecan, and don't mind ordering it online, buy at least 20lbs at a time, and shipping is actually reasonable. This is where I get my woods from:

    http://www.baxtersoriginal.com/bbq-smoker-woods.html

    Comes out to about $1.90 a pound, shipped, for just about any of the woods. 

    If your interested, shoot him an e-mail, and see if you could work something out. I ended up paying $40 for ~6lbs of Apple, ~6lbs of Pecan, ~6lbs of Cherry. And in my area, wood chunks are more per pound, so I had to buy online. 

    If I had to have one type of wood, it would hands down be Pecan.

    I have seen apple but I'm not sure about cherry in the homeless near me. I'm in the Jax area. Now I have seen some good places to order wood chips and chunks online @ Maine grilling woods.com I think

    I wish I did. [​IMG]

    I heard abut this a while ago, and I think Cabelas offers something similar - like 40#'s for $15 or something.

    I can get Pecan. Apple. Cherry etc. etc. locally, but it's much more expensive them ordering online. For some reason..

    Tilly, where in RI did you find the chunks? I've seen the small chips but not chunk apple and cherry.
     
  14. Was at my local HD in Riverhead NY.  They also had both apple and cherry chunks.  Maybe it is a nationwide thing.
     
  15. We've got the charbroil apple and cherry chunks here in Winston now as well! Cherry is my new favorite smoke wood.

    You guys could always try the exchange program through this site some of us other members have access to different types of woods and would like to trade for other unique BBQ related items that we cant get in our areas. I just got a good score on some wild cherry from a guy I know in the lawn care bussiness. Also have a good amount of seasoned apple...its plentiful up here!

    Just Sayin'!

    Nothing like that down here in FL. Just the same old Hickory or Mesquite chunks.

    Al, have you tried Home Depot recently? I have been to three different stores in the Tampa area and they all had a good supply of Apple and Cherry chunks.
