    Sporting goods store.

    Ive been seeing it more and more at hardware and home improvement stores in the grilling department. I'm referring to a bag of chunks, not a cord of logs.

    Down in Florida it seems that every home improvement store sells small bags of chips (including pecan) in the grill section. Might be worth a try.

    If I can't find something quickly at a local store I almost always order it from Amazon.

  8. Yeah Try Home Depot, Lowe's , Academy might try Wally World

  9. Here's a screen shot I just did at Home Depot for Omaha, NE:

    Hope that helps.

    If you know of the where abouts of a pecan tree, the shells work just as well without damaging the tree.

    Note I keep mine well guarded.

    A friend bought me some Pecan chips from Amazon as a thank you. I know there are different sources with Amazon, but these were so old they constantly flashed in the chip tray.

    I am not saying that some other supplier might not have fresher newer, but I would not go overboard especailly at those prices till I got one bag and tested them first.

    If you'll watch Amazon you'll catch some really good deals sometimes. Last year they were dumping there existing stocks and were selling Western Hickory, Mesquite, Apple, Oak, and Cherry chips all at less than 2.00/bag delivered. No pecan though.

    My Ace Hardware, home section, sells a wide variety of smoking wood, including pecan. 

    Do you have a Cabelas near by, they will have it also.  I bought some at Bass Pro on my last trip into one of their stores.

    I have an Ace hardware just a couple blocks from my home. Not once did I ever think to go there. I'll check that out this afternoon. Appreciate the info.
