KC Wood

Discussion in 'Woods for Smoking' started by jaysq, Nov 11, 2013.

  1.  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.

    Have you tried Craigslist?
  3. Craigslist. I know some people that sell fire wood if you want I can check if the have any non mixed. They sell for heat. I also have farm fields that I can cut trees off of. I am south of KC 30 min to an hour depending on where you are. I have been looking for some fellow smokers to work with on cutting some wood.
  4. I have been looking on Craigslist. I am not an expert, so I dont know the look of

    good clean oak from pine. Most of the wood on C's is for heating. So you get a mix

    of who knows what kind of wood. By the time I mix up my rub/sauce, buy trim and

    ready meat. Than trust my food to feed my family I need to be sure of the

    source of the wood I use. No fun setting your fire and it smells off and you got a

    full packer ready to rock. Call me lazy I just would like to buy good quality

    bbq wood out my way. I just do not have the time to cut and haul wood.

    Well I'm going to check out A1 and the Wood Yard. Let you know how it goes.

    Thank's for the replys.

    Try this place it is in on 3001 Merrian Ln in kck...just off I 35 and lamar.  I bought wood there several years back and was satisfied with the quality.  I now have my own source of wood, white oak and apple..that I cut back home.

    I buy all my wood at woodyard in merriam. Costs about a buck a stick, but im guessing thats still cheaper than what you have been paying.
  7. Picked up a 1/4 cord of oak and 1/8 of hickory.

    Not the best stacking on my part. To bad I put the hickory on the bottom left. Duh

    35.00 per 1/8 cord. He is south of O.P. Has lots of wood. Some real nice cherry wood.

    Its split, dry, clean 18 inch. I could send his info. if you like. thanks

    Did he have any pecan?
  9. I'm not sure what he has Dean74. I saw alot of 1/8 cord stacked wood. I called

    ahead and he had the wood I wanted stacked and ready waiting for me. What was

    great, he it stacked in a perfect 1/8 face cut cord. So it wasn't a big pile of who

    knows what you get. I think I might go back Sat. and pick up an 1/8 of cherry.

    Hope this is not a party foul, his ph. 913-681-3291 He has a nice web site.

    pm me for a link or give him a call. Super nice guy. Very nice wood. Very clean.

    He was wrapping the wood in plastic to keep it dry and clean when I was loading up.

    Also the wood is off the ground on a sheet of plywood. He cares. cheers J.
