Not because it's Christmas time...

Not because my favorite thing to do when it's snowing is roll out the 'Dera, light it up and sit in the hot tub with a cigar...

Not even because it's hockey season (well normally)...

Because it's time for my annual trip to the orchard! NOTHING beats free wood.

Another great haul of Apple this year. I only took what my little car could carry. My buddy FILLED the entire bed of his Ranger. I'm buying a truck before next year dang it.

Just a reminder for all those wondering where to get your hands on bbq wood, open up your phone, look under the orchard section and give 'em a call. Most orchards push out trees every year to keep replenishing their fields. Some years they just trim, but even those trimmings are 4 - 6 inch thick.

Small stuff is for my father-in-law and a guy at work who have small smokers. I just chunk it up and give 'em each a bag full.

They're bigger than they look I think. The pile on the far right, chunked, filled two 10lb peanut bags up! :lol:

Cut up 6 apple trees last weekend. Been given permission to cut up a downed sweet cherry orchard and will do so as soon as weather permits. Going to smoke a nice big butt for the farmer.

I need to get wood.I've heard citrus is good to smoke with but haven't tried it.They clearing out acres of citrus in the Queen Creek area for new homes. Might be worth a drive out there. Any of you Brothers ever tried citrus wood?

I'd try orange before any of the others. I'm just thinking lemon, lime, and grapefruit might be a little pungent

I was going to say somthing about a little blue pill but that would not be on topic.


My wood pile is getting low too.

I also wake up with wood, but morning breath takes care of it pretty quick.

Sit tight KC. We'll find out tomorrow if they can get it done or not. They've got 3 more weeks to get a deal done to save the season (I play with a Blues VP so I hear the inside scoop). He says things are actually looking good to save a shortened season.

If the owners completely balk tomorrow and make no concessions, seasons over.

I got a truck but no Orchards in the book.
P.S. Rent a truck, it's a lot cheaper!
