I am restarting my smoking life after 15 years of hiatus. I need to find a good wood source for apple, maple and cherry wood. Good chunks, reasonable prices. Hopefully free shipping (AZ resident).

What are your recommendations for wood sources?

I get the B&B logs and chunks. I order from ACE Hardware website and no shipping fee to pick up at their local store.

You can find apple and cherry chunks at your local wallyworld for pretty reasonable prices.
Maple is going to be a little harder to find locally here in the desert.
But as EdP said above you could order all three from ACE with free ship to store.
Of course, there is Amazon with free shipping for Prime members.

Thanks for all the responses...and the winner is: Ace Hardware!
Cost per pound was less than $0.70. Most places are $1.50 to $2.50 per pound.

A spreadsheet is attached to show the details. The big box stores have the best deals on charcoal per pound as well (not Ace).

Again, thanks for all the inputs. Very enlightening! :)

I'm only seeing pinon/pinion firewood and chunks on the Ace website, which is a type of pine and not for cooking.
