Fruit woods; Anyone know where I can order in bulk sizes.
Just wandering if any of you know a online site that I can order apple,cherry,and also hickory in bulk size's. By bulk I mean at least 50# I would prefer 100# crates.
Just tired of ordering 10 and 15 # bags. Any help would be appreciated.

I got two weeks vacation in August, a road trip won't be out of the question within reason.
These days the shipping can be fierce, but Alabama is a lot closer to this source I have used in Houston than I am here in Long Island.
check out Bob's Cooking Wood on Jones Road, Houston, TX. 18668004785.

Ordered from them twice with good results in 50 lb. land.

WOW!!! That's some serious commitment. I know no place to buy that. No apple orchards locally? A good storm and you have all the wood you need.

I would recommend Craigslist. I bought a whole cherry tree this winter for $40. Now I've got plenty of fuel!

True, there are better more cost-efficient ways;
I found out last spring that a couple of guys that I see at the local beer distributor work for the town and already I have enough cherry from down trees etc. to last me almost this spring and summer; also stopped in last fall at the local apple orchard to score some fresh-pressed cider and now have a source this season for any apple from the winter storm damage.
But, still gotta get my mesquite sent in so far as there just isn't much around here in L.I! .
