I have an old school stick burner. Live in K.C. MO. Buying wood at Ace 20$ a bag 1 qubic ft. That way I could try all kinds of wood at small amounts. I find I like an oak and apple mix. I guess what I am asking is where do you KC. smokers get your wood at? Split, dry,ready to use and a true 1/4 or 1/2 cord. thanks J. Yoder Chey.
