Team four,
Why do you store your wood in the frig?

Having said that, I would still consider Fruita. Their prices include priority shipping and their wood is first class quality. I use the bagged chunks from the big box stores to cook at home, but for comps there is no comparison to Fruita. And yes I store it in the fridge...I don't drink beer.

No beer? A 6 pack is apart of all my recipes.

Storing in the fridge retains moisture in the fruit woods and prevents them from cracking from drying out. The wood will burn longer than dried out chunks. I have compared fridge stored vs non-fridge stored chunks and the theory holds true. I only buy 10 lbs at a time and burn that up in a couple of months.

The stuff in the bags usually burns up so fast IMO. I found it interesting that fruitawoodchunks.com actually had a section on how to store your wood chunks. I have a mini fridge in the yard that I was planning on converting to a meat curing chamber, but it will hold wood for now I suppose!

Hahaa. This is a good thing. The first time I tried my little charbroil barrel smoker from home depot...I started drinking beer when I put the ribs on. 8 hours later when they where ready to come off, I pulled them off and dropped em right in the dirt. Cried and went to bed. Boyfriend was so pissed!
