Default South Florida Looking For Stick Wood

I am in the West Palm Beach area and have been trying for some time now to find a local source for stick wood for smoking. Im doing bigger and bigger cookouts and the chunk wood that I can find is not practical to use anymore.
I use primarily oak and apple.
Anyone in my area have any sources????

I see it pop up on craigslist from local tree companies, mostly oak only though. I get my uncle to bring some down from tallahassee for mine. How much you looking for?

Thanks for the reply.
I have a source for oak.
Im really surprised how difficult it is down here to source a variety of wood.
I can go to my Publix and find chunks of apple, oak, hickory, mesquite but can't find the sticks anywhere.
Must not be many competition guys around here with stick burners.
I had my sight's set on a new 68" Lang but im holding off until i solve this issue.

It's funny most of the brick and mortar BBQ around here use Australian Pne which in fact is not a pine. Have you tried that? I used in mfo and it's a long burner if you get it dried right. I get mine from Monster Tree Service in Ft Lauderdale. Ray, 954-579-8157

Australian Pine is an evergreen conifer - a pine. It is also a nasty sooty burn. Skip it if you can. After the freezes in the early 60's it caused a lot of chimney fires from creosote and soot build up in fireplaces. Makes a great campfire though! Stick with oak, red oak is what most "Q" joints use.

I would look on craigslist like others have said. I get all my wood from a landscaper-Tree service company but I use 3 total. You need to find some local landscapers for your source. I mainly use Oak and it's plentiful. If your looking for Hickory it's going to be tough. If you make them some Q when you do your pickups they give you even better deals down the road and will keep an eye out for specialty woods of your liking. I get a face cord for $50.

I respectfully disagree. Australian pine is NOT a conifer, it is dubbed a "pine" because the needles resemble that of a true pine. I've been using Australian pine for years, it burns hot and is similar in smoke to oak.

I agree! I own a tree service and Australian pines are definitely not coniferous. They do make good firewood and smokewood. A similar species, Cunningham pine, (also deciduous) is less desirable for burning, but works ok in a pinch.

There are many people who mistakenly call the Florida Slash Pine by the name Australian pine. That, however is a conifer and full of sap.

To the original poster, let me know if you want something specific. If I work on that kind of tree I can save some for you. I do not stock any firewood (except for my own personal stash)
