Well I guess this is where you start. I have lived my last 15 years in TX. so I do love the food. But now I had to come back home to Phila. I never really asked how they smoked or grilled the food, I just know I love it. Now I have to fend for myself. I just got a Great Outdoors Gas smoker. I've tried smokin some baby backs and they turned out petty good. But I know I'll be needing help soon. Nice to find a place to hang out and learn from the best.

Hey Smokin For Life,i'm From Phila. Also And I'd Like To Know If You Know Where To Get A Variety Of Wood For A Reasonable Price. Now I Only Have Hickory And Mesquite Which I Buy From Home Depot.
Hello Camocook sorry I can't help you. I really don't know any other place. It's either Home Depot or Walmart. Living for so long in TX. I really like the taste of mesquite. I'm trying to find some apple myself. I want to try smokin fish next. Where about are you in Phila. I'm in Mayfair.
Thanks For Getting Back To Me. A Friend Of Mine Has Some Well Seasoned Sycamore Maple, He Burned Most Of It In A Camp Fire. I Don't Know If The Type Of Maple Makes Much Difference But Hopefully Someone Will Chime In And Set Me Straight. Oh, By The Way, I Live In South Philly Now. I Work With A Couple People From Mayfair. If You Go To Any Bars On Frankford Ave You Gotta Know One Of Them For Sure. If I Get Any Variety Of Wood I'll Be Sure To Contact You.
