not so fast, my fellow farker.
Head down to the Woodshed in Orange County. They have Red and White Oak, Cherry, Mesquite, Hickory, and Apple. Chips, chunks and logs. Call before you come to make sure they have what you need.
Also, a few well-place calls to any Brethren in Central Cali or the Idylwild area may get you some AVOCADO wood.
You may also want to barter with your neighbors. In exchange for some smoked product, I was able to obtain mulberry and pear wood.
