Default wood chunk question

I was wondering where you guys get your comp wood chunks?
The place I usually buy from has recently has had to kiln the wood before shipping it out (federal laws) and I have noticed a little difference in the final product. Any ideas?

They are hibernating at this time. However, if a wood chunk could chunk wood they would chunk as much wood as they could. lol

Because of insect spread, EVERY wood product has (or should be) kiln dried! Now, if you're buying pecan wood from the guy down the street, I doubt it'll be kiln dried. Seasoned, meaning it's been cut for 6 months or more.

I agree with should be...The company I use has just started doing it. Turns out getting permits and setting everything up is a bit costly and time consuming from what he said. Someone from the state (MO i believe) has to show up by appointment and sign each batch off.

Wierd Wood Factoid (not too far off topic) -- in Florida, wood sold there has to be fumigated with an insecticide not kiln dried!

Got some good stick wood from Vaughn Wood Products at the Royal, perfect size, box packed nicely. I'm also keen on Maine Grilling Wood, but I'm getting some pecan from the guy down the street tomorrow!
