      Do they sell small batches? The website seems to suggest that they come in 50 Lbs. bags. do not need that much.

        oh, i really don't know. i used to get a few 50 pounders at the start of every BBQ season. give them a call, they're very accomadating.

        but if your looking for small-ish amounts all my MarketBaskets carry something that looks like about a 2# bag.

      As Steve said, Brookline Ice and Coal should do. Otherwise, Home Depot and many hardware stores sell wood chips during the season, and may carry some over. You can always use the Internet-- Amazon, etc.

        Marty's in Newton sells them in small bags. I don't know if the Marty's in Allston has them.

          Home depot and Lowes have a surprisingly good availability

            Most places like Home Depot and Lowes only have Hickory and Mesquite. I found lots of woods at Lamson and Davis Hardware in Malden, they had Cherry, Apple, Maple as well as the standard Hickory and Mesquite. I have also purchased woood chips and chunks at Bass Pro Shops (Foxboro or the Internet)

              Brookline Ice has bagged wood chips in smaller bags.
              I'd say they are around 2 or 3 lb bags.
              They have oak, apple, cherry and hickory that I know of, and the prices are much less than Bass Pro and Home Depot.

            I noticed when i was walking out of the enormous Marty's in Newton this evening that they had about half a dozen different kinds of wood chips in small bags. I noticed apple, cherry and pecan among others. I hope I remember this next spring when I get the Weber Bullet out of the basement.

                Damn right ;). My daughter was just commenting to me how when it snows, the first path shoveled is to the grill. I've actually got wood chips at TJ Maxx in the past.

                  I did a tea-smoked turkey in the smoker last weekend. It was nice having the snow around to quickly cool off the grills.

              I usually go to HD for mesquite or hickory. I don't drive so I'm somewhat limited..unless I rent a car. South Bay is bikable.

              If you don't want to do a lot of running around,and just want convenience, Charles St Hardware has a bag of mesquite..I bought a bagof the hickory last week...and tried to buy more on Monday for backup but I got the last of it.

                  I saw quite a variety at the Bass Pro Shop in Foxboro last week, and while I know that's not exactly convenient they do offer Smoker Flavor Bisquettes on their website. The last time I checked they had; apple, hickory, pecan and a variety pack. I've always had good luck ordering from them as well.
