Hello I am fairly new to smoking and have been using pecan wood and neighbor gave me. I saw a deal for some apple wood splits and I'm interested in using apple. He's asking $30 for a 3x3 stack
Is that a good price to pay?

I've noticed around here apple is hard to come by unless it's at a winery but most the time big time BBQs have already got that gobbled up before anybody has a chance
Countless homeowners around the world use firewood all year round to heat their homes. The cost of firewood fluctuates from year to year and there are many factors that influence the cost of a cord of wood. Firewood isn’t like an Apple iPhone. There’s no fixed cost.

The quality and type of wood varies from state to state. Every state (and country) has varying market conditions and their own species of wood that’s grown in the region. Firewood is a commodity that fluctuates with the market in the same way that oil fluctuates in value on a daily basis. Having said that, we’ll give you some guidelines to follow and the information you need to make an informed buying decision.

This article sets out to answer the most common questions asked by homeowners as it relates to firewood.

✓ Fact:  Firewood uses “cord” as the unit of measurement and its origin can be dated back to around 1610 when wood was sold in bundles and tied with a cord, literally. Obviously back then there was a limit to the size that a person could carry so a cord back then was much smaller than a cord is today.
That's a great deal deal, 1 yard for 30$. I was gona put up a wheel barrow full of good apple, maple or oak etc. on CL for 30$. Great for campers and BBQ guys. 3 pices of wood from Fred Meyers cost 6$ lol is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
