I actually live in Valdese now right off exit 111 on I40. I moved here last summer but I have lived in Hickory all my life prior to that. I was really happy to see Academy Sports come to town. They have a large selection of grills and BBQ accessories. The 20lb bags of B&B lump are $12.99 and they usually have cherry, apple, hickory, mesquite, and pecan wood chunks in bags as well...
