hickory wood for bbq

tmsjas Jun 7, 2009 07:01 PM

where can i find wood in los angeles for bbq'ing?

    The location is a bit hard to find, but worth it:

    California Charcoal & Firewood

    P.S. Almost any establishment in Los Angeles that utilizes firewood or lump charcoal in their food prep is sourcing from this place. And, it's where I buy my hickory and oak...

      I used to go there 20 years ago when they were the only place that carried mesquite charcoal. Was like $10 for 50 pounds. Yeah, I got lost trying to find the place.

      Depending where the OP lives any place that sells firewood will most likely have hickory.

        Are you specifically looking for hickory or are you interested in other hardwoods and fruit woods? Logs or Chunks?

        Home Depot has chunks in a bag for under $10.

          There's a firewood lot on Sepulveda, just above Pico, on the north east side of the street.

                My special place to buy either hickory or mesquite is at 99 Cents Store. I stock up on them when they are available. Pretty big bag for 99 cents. Don't tell anyone though...it's a secret.

                    Just came back from the 99 Cents Store on Western and 182nd St. in Torrance and saw both hickory and mesquite wood was still available for 99 cents. I still have enough so I passed on buying more. Sure beats paying close to $3 at the markets. Wood chips are wood chips no matter if they are not name brand.
