Yes, but you can smell the difference in the wood. If you are cooking on a stick burner it probably is cost prohibitive. If you are just using it for flavor on charcoal you can't go wrong. I get the mini splits and they last a long time.

I have some live oak, pecan and red oak chunks that came from local tree pruning.

But, I get good chunks for a good price at Academy. I've been buying them for years, and have been very happy with the product, and the price is reasonable if you live in the burbs, as I do.

In Las Vegas we have a whole store dedicated to wood and charcoal. And it's only 15 min from my house!

Holy crap! I pay $4.49 for a 1/3 cubic foot size bag of chunks at Academy. They want 35-bucks or more for 2/3 cubic feet of the same farking chunks?

I'm in the wrong business.

I have ordered form doitbest.com before. Good deal, delivered free to a local participating store of your choice. Supports local hardware stores which I am in favor of.

Having said that, HD is closest and most convenient for me. I picked up a bag each of apple and cherry, 18lbs each at $20 + tax each. Wood looked ok. Then found Western brand apple and cherry chunks 9 or 10lb bags for $8 + tax each. Will return the HD chunks now.

A year or so ago I picked up about 2 trees worth of white oak for my WFO for free from a guy who was clearing a lot to build a house. He felled the trees and cut it up into logs, I just had to drive 45 mins each way and split it... in August... in Houston (read hot and humid).

For now I will probably stick with Academy.

Nothing fancy for me. I go for best price / convenience crossroads.

- Hickory: Walmart in large bags cheap.
- Cherry, Pecan, Apple - Usually the Weber branded stuff is easiest to find, either at Ace Hardware or Orchard Supply Hardware (local chain here in CA -- not sure how extensive they are)
- I'd like to get some Oak chunks but haven't found a good source yet. I have some of the Jack Daniel's branded whiskey oak cask chips I bought for a special project but that's it.
- Mesquite is rather powerful, so I prefer to just mix in some mesquite lump with whatever fuel I'm using rather than use chunks.

Get mine from BBQ_PD and his store. Get to have some good Q talk, a beer and some times some sample of whatever was cooked that day. Least I can do is grab some chunks while I am there.
