I hooked up with a tree service in my area and he brings me a truck load every once in a while. I have to cut it up and split but he gives me wood and I give him BBQ. Works great.

BnB, welcome. I'm probably about 20 minutes down the road from 'ya, give or take 5.

I've pretty much had to surf craigslist frequently. Also, I suggest posting your own
"wanted" ad there too. That worked for me recently, got a truck load of oak delivered
and a truck load of hickory on the way. BE CAREFUL though. Many of these guys
frankly dont know hickory from sweetgum, and that's BAD. Last year had a guy say
he had 1/2 hickory and 1/2 oak. There wasn't an identifiable piece of hickory in the

On that note, if you can hook up with a tree guy, that's probably the best way, that
way you see the bark and hopefully the leaves to know for certain.

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 know folks are talking mostly about CL, but is there a wood yard or the like anywhere around town? I'm thinking about somewhere you could load up and weigh in/out or just pay per load?

I saw a place in Austell with a big pile of split wood but I haven't had a chance to go back and check it out.

My parents have a place in B'ham, but that's a little far to drive. They've gotten reasonable prices for a truckload of hickory mainly b/c it was what they had at the time.
