    Default Firewood jackpot

    I found a great place to buy my firewood for smoking. This is a load of seasoned hickory I bought for $50. I could have had more. I had to tell them to stop. Itís a logging company in southern, IL.
    I had bought some hickory from a guy on craigslist. He charged me $25 for a level, contractors, size wheel barrel full of hickory. When I tried to make a larger purchase he said that he bought the wood in southern Illinois and was resells it. So, I started searching the web for firewood in southern IL and found this company. I canít believe how much I got for $50. They loaded it with a conveyor. All I had to do was spread it around in the back of the truck. They said also supply the wood to some major BBQ jointís near St. Louis. Said they can only send green wood at those places. That's all that they want and it has to be a certain size cut, with no grey on it. They gave me some samples of cherry, pecan and sassafras to try out. I will definitely be going back there again. If you live in southern IL and need wood. I can give you their number.

    Last time I bought that much was in '98. I paid $75 for that much pecan and thought it was a steal!

    It crossed my mind. A load split of hickory around here is 3 times that amount. It ended up making a stack 4'x 10'

    That is a little more than what they call a rick around here. that would sell for over $100 for wood of that quality, and we are in hardwood country.
