    Does anyone in the Tampa area know where to get wood? I'm SICK of using Wal-Mart hickory. I'd like to buy locally. Alternatively, does anyone know where to buy wood that won't cost an arm and a leg for shipping?
  2. If you dont mind seasoning it. Try a local tree service. They cut lots of oak, and might have some pecan.

    Also just north of tampa they just built a Gander Mountian on 75 they carry some.

    Another recommendation is to check out some local pool and patio stores in the area. I just recently found out that one of them by my house has an excellent outdoor bbq area with a wide variety of bbq / smoker accessories. Finally got some high quality hardwood lump and am happy to know where to get it (BGE lump charcoal).

    Good luck!

    Not too familiar with Tampa except its warm down there. Do you have any fruit orchads that might have apple or cherry trees? If there are any give them a call and see if they sale their trimmings or even better give it away.
