Stacked pallet of splits 48x42x52h.A little less than 1/2 a cord
air dried black jack oak $75
kiln dried hickory $200
I use the oak for fires & hickory in my smoker
In a pinch, I've still got about 15 acres of hardwood, a chainsaw and a mule (Kawasaki, not organic)
I'm Dave
Got a bunch of cooking toys and a custom metal fabrication shop where I spend my time building all sorts of smokers & outdoor cooking gear.

I get seasoned oak and apple in these parts for around $125-150 a cord. For about 25 bucks more they will deliver.

Your prices look pretty good for those size sacks. If you buy from someone who sells firewood and buy in larger quantities you can get your per piece price lower. It all depends on how much wood you go through in a season. Sometimes the convenience of just grabbing a bag of wood at the store is worth the $15. If you are cooking on just wood that might not be so practical.

So I guess what I paid wasn't too far from that for the bags I bought.

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.

I burn 4-5 cords of firewood/yr., so I pick cherry for smoking from that. Firewood cost ranges from free (via my chainsaw and pickup) to $200/cord (seasoned/split/delivered).

This year I'll begin to experiment using different wood (oak, cherry, maple, ash) for fuel in the stickburner.
