  1. 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.

    2. There is a guy next to J&J Burger Shack & BBQ on Adams, literally next to them

      5754 W Adams Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90016

        BBQ galore has logs, chunks and smaller pieces

      2. 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.

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