The job moved me from the west central area of Texas and didn't have room to take the smoker I had so I left it behind. Moved to the Houston area and have now finally been able to get a new smoker.

Just got an Old Country BBQ All American Angus Smoker. Looking for a place in the Houston area (preferably on the north side) for good wood.

I see the problem right away,   Load the smoker first !   Welcome from East Texas lot's a good people and information on this site. Look on Craig's list and the Thrifty Nichol , you might also call a couple of the pit makers in Houston, I am sure they can head you in the right direction.
