a full cord for $165 sounds good. i get my wood for free. i go to parents house and cut mesquite from their land. i got some seasoned live oak from my bro. i have 3 pecan trees in my yard. i did buy a bag of mesquite chunks yesterday, as i don't have any seasoned mesquite right now.

Jeff, I don't know much about prices in your area, but around here the price would be in the ball park for my area for specialty wood.

$165 sounds about fair, or average anyways. I would bet that you can beat that price down with trade, unless the seller is a smoker himself, and even then who knows?


You can always check with your local tree services for free wood but paying for it being cut to size and split is almost always worth it. As much as I could use the workout, cutting, splitting and stacking one cord in a day would ruin me for a week!

The wood here is silver buttonwood, sapodilla, key lime, avocado, royal poinciana, mahogany, teak, mango and other weird tropical caribbean, bahamian and african woods. Not much to burn, so I bought mine at this company. It ended up being $1 a pound for apple, but I'm eating good.
