hoe much are you looking for? Most wood suppliers don't sell by species. Good hardwoods are abundant around here. If you can recognize trees you can find lots of good wood laying on the roads. Hickory, oak, beech, maple, are all pretty common and all good smoke woods. And you can always go to Home Depot and buy a bag , over priced as it is .

I checked with a fire wood supplier in Delran New Jersey and he only sold it in cords that are 8 by 4 . I really don't want that much , don't have the room to store all that lumber I just need maybe 20 to 40 pieces .

I think you will have an issue not buying more of it now. On CL, a guy in Quakertown is selling a 1/4 cord for $75.00.

Did you ever think about buying hickory chunks from your local hardware store?

A guy above or below. The guy I buy sells a little over 1/4 cords for $75. Cherry, hickory, red oak and apple.

A bin for $70 sounds expensive.

Most have oak, but one had hickory as well. I hope this helps you.

Hi Phil Don't really know how much I'm looking for, may 20-40 splits seems about right. Just looking for a place close by. A cord would be way too much.
Thanks DanB
