    Default Wood and Where to get it.

    I was not sure where to post the ? so I hope this is the right place.


    I was wondering where every gets their wood from. I would like to try experimenting with different woods.

    So far I have bought wood from walmart only. I would like to know if there would be any were else I can buy from.

    If any one has some ideas I am all ears. But I do live in the middle of Idaho so I do not have many choices.

    Thanks!

    Keep an eye on craigslist.org. If you have a Ace/Westlake around, they have bags of chunks too.

    Check out any place that sell smokers. Also Academy Sports usually has bags of various wood types.

    never bought but ebay has quite a selection. Put the word out that your Qing and the wood just tends to land at your feet really. Got a whole back shed of cherry, white oak, and bit of hickory with more coming. Little work, lot of reward.

    Around here you ab also check with grass suppliers. Arlington grass sells 40lb bags of splits cheap. Mesquite, oak, hickory, pecan less than 15 a bag. Might check some of your local suppliers too.

    The "buy specialty woods button site helps support The Joint and has several hard to find fruit woods.

    For standard woods like oak and hickory, even mesquite, you can buy chunks any store that sells smokers, and a lot of them have mini logs as well. If you have a good sized stickburner, find a good local firewood man and take good care of him.

    Tim, would it be possible to pick up an order of wood instead of having shipped?

    The Lang eats it like candy. Here is a big slice of the last cherry tree we cut up around here in July!


    It took 3 of us to pick it up and put it in my dads truck. He likes to turn wood on his huge lathe.

    In the pile the brighter colored is fresh cut cherry(like the chunk above) and to the left is maple, and on the right and behind the cherry is red oak.
    The pile is 4 rows deep. It has taken 2 years of very hard work to accumulate it. We used to have campfires every weekend in the fire pit until I bought the Lang in Feb.
