I've had exceptional luck by putting the word out that I wanted cooking wood. I now have a guy at the power company that drops stuff off once on a while and several requests to cut down apple trees. After having the Lang for less than a year I've probably dropped 10 apple trees and should be good for a while. Also some tree trimmers stockpile the good stuff to sell.

Can anyone tell me what kind of tree this is? One got cut down recently and I can take it if I want it, wondering if it's something I can use. I think I might be getting some free hickory too, pumped.

Thanks

Maple or sycamore.

There is a free APP you can download to an I phone called Leafsnap, it uses visual recognition software to help identify tree species from photographs of their leaves.

Hey guys, so I did some more research and I believe that this is a sycamore tree. The bark is definitely sycamore. So my question now is, do people use sycamore for bbq?

Thanks

When you live in the boonies and supplement your heating bill with wood. Cutting up some for the smokers is no problemo.

Calling an orchard is the way to go. A lot of the online stuff has to be kiln dried to kill insects/parasites mainly so they are not transported with the wood over state lines. Noticed the wood doesn't quite smell the same but the results are pretty close.
