Default wholesale wood

Where do I get wholesale wood for smoking at a low price?

I will be in need of maybe a pallet load for export out of the USA.

Any chance you can make friends with some folks at a tree service company?

If that doesn't work for you, I'd talk with the folks you get your wood from now and see if they can assist. I saw that super coupon show on TV the other day and learned you can order deodorant by the case at a grocery store. Who'd a thunk?

You might check with your country's agricultural department before putting too much effort into a supplier. Most countries are pretty strict about raw wood being imported because of potential diseases that might come with it. Not sure about T&T, maybe they're more relaxed about this kind of thing.

You might try this, they export to other countries and I believe the heat treat their wood to conform with import regulations. BTW I am not affliliated in any way.-

Most pallets that goods are shipped on are hardwood that can be used for bbq, but unless you have an excellent eye for wood, ya never can tell what type of wood ya are using.And the wood burns fast and hot.

Try contacting the local landscaping companies in your area, They will usually let you have what you want if you haul it yourself.

Default Wood.......;}-

I'm not sure about discount wood,but if you are willing to payshipping,then you could get just about anything. I know several wood people here in Toledo,Ohio, and would ask them if you like;or someone with a lot of wood may do you a deal,oterwise,I'm stumped
If you need some PM me and I'll send you the numbers.
Good luck and...

Got some boxes from these guys. Might be a bit pricey, but they packed the boxes nice and tight, and they have a great selection.
