    What is it and how will you use it? For instance, Apple, Oak, Hickory or Maple, that will be used in Chunks for smoking...Yes a good deal.

    If you are a Stick Burner, you should be able to do better. Here is a place to start or Google Wood for Sale in Genesee County NY for others...JJ

    The same woods cut in chunks at Home Depot is same price for 5Lb. That looks like more than 5 Lb....JJ

    Looks like about 15 in there for 7 so that's close to 30 for ten
     
  7. The chunks at HD or Loews are usually very dry and of unknown age.

    I'm not suggesting buying from HD or Lowes. I was pointing out that the bundles look like much more for the same price. A good value...JJ

    There has to be a tree trimming service close by. They will sometimes sell the choice Wood after trimming. I have an older retired man that makes extra money buy splitting wood and selling. I can get a truck bed full for $40.

    Where you from brooksy NY is going broke tough times everyone trying to make a buck however they can. You probably still need to season it after you get it? I don't have much room to store it

    Nope seasoned 6 months to a year. I live in North central Florida. I live on the acres in the woods so no problem with space to store my wood

    I wish short on that 1200 feet for 3 of us and a 115lbs doberman and my shed has been taken over by my wife's Halloween decorations

    Ahhhhh not the decorations!! My ex wanted all kinds of decorations for every holiday. Was such a pain.

    Halloween is her thing. I allow this only because it is fun for the kids.

    OK for the kids is acceptable. I have two boys so can understand what we go through to make them happy. I have my wood on a make shift stand right now when I buy a welder I'm going to make a better more permanent one. Maybe that's an option for you?

    Possible I have an old royal oak charcoal grill that the bottom rotted out on would like to turn it into a smoker with the extra offset box I have. Might be above my talent though
