BBQ Smoking Woods

tellywise Aug 8, 2008 07:09 PM

I've been watching this show on Discovery home called license to grill. The host of the show tends to use exotic woods like apple and cherry. I've checked my local home depot in the Bronx and a few hardware stores in westchester but none of them seem to stock anything but mesquite and hickory. Besides online websites does any other BBQ aficionado know where to buy wood locally?

    Sorry to piggyback on your question, but any sightings of allspice wood (for Jamaican jerk) as well?

    I, for one, have had no luck finding anything other than mesquite and hickory chips.
    Maybe one of the better nurseries in town would have something else?

    EDIT: It looks like Gracious Home (3rd Av/70th St ; I know, wrong board) carries apple, maple and cherry chips ($9 for 143 cubic inches): http://www.gracioushome.com/webapp/wc...

        The Woodman carries apple, oak, cherry, hickory and olive, last time I checked. He also carries Wicked Good Charcoal, which is really good stuff.

          Jetmore in Wantagh Long Island. Merrick road east of Wantagh parkway. Maybe 30 min. from the Throgs Neck Bridge.

            Tony's hardware on Smith Street has lately been carrying bags with large chunks of apple, pecan, oak, and other woods for smoking. Great stuff
