    I live in the North Georgia/Chattanooga area. I'm finding it hard to find applewood or cherry chunks to smoke with. I found a supplier on Ebay that will ship 10 lbs green or dried for 6.99 + 9.99 shipping. Just wanted to know if you guys thought it was a good deal or not. Perhaps you may know where to get some?

    Ouch, that is alot ta pay fer shippin, check round yer super stores, like a walmart or similar in your area. Look in some of the big lumber or do it yourself stores. Check in there grillin section. Otherwise look in the phone book under grilling supplies. Gotta be somebody in yer area sellin the stuff by the bag.

    On Edit, I looked there are 9 Home depots within 50 miles of Chattanooga, they should have wood chips in the grillin section, buy know cause they may not have em come winter. Good luck.

    The problem with allof the local stores is that they only have mesquite or hickory! I'm looking for apple, cherry, pecan, etc.

    I pretty much only use cherry wood lumber but would like to get into the fruit woods.

    Call your local cabinet, millwork, door making, and woodworking shops. One batch of scrap cherry will keep you for a long time. They will have a ton of oak and maple as well. At one time I had half a one car garage full of cherry, oak, maple, hickory 3/4 cutoffs. Yeah I over obsessed and eventually dumped it all except the cherry. You can also hit the dumpsters like I did as well but do it after they close for the day as they are afraid of liability usually.

    There are some ebay dealers that will sell 50lbs of seasoned cherry or apple for $50 shipped. $1 a pound not bad if you just gotta have it [​IMG].
