I just got a new mini smoker. Was wondering where to go for the different woods for the smoker tray. Any suggestions??

    Great! I was wondering where I could get wood chips :D Thanks!

      Around this time of year Canadian Tire marks down all of their chips, so I stock up. They have apple, hickory, alder, mesquite, cherry, maple and those broken down Jack Daniel's barrel type chips. They have those bisquettes if that's what you're looking for as well.

        I'd suggest Canadian Tire as well - and if you want to smoke throughout the winter (and don't want to make your own chips) STOCK UP SOON.
        Sometimes a helpful worker will look in the back for summer stock, but most times they are flat out of stock during months ending with an R, Y and H.
        I assume your smoker will use chips rather than briquets or blocks.
        Quincaillerie Hog on Sherbrooke West will surely carry chips and gourmet ones at that, although I haven't been there since their move. Note they are overpriced here.
        You can try other hardware joints as well - Home Depot, Reno-Depot, Rona, etc etc.

          It's called Joey Services from my recollection.

          I get untreated wood blocks at Rona. They are meant for the Woodflame Grill BBQ specifically, but could work for a smoker, I'd imagine. They come in bags and they have different types of wood - maple, oak, etc.

            This is great - my smoker also takes bigger chunks, which are harder to find. Will check at Rona next time I'm there. Thx for the tip!

              Which place are you going to exactly? I've run out of Woodflame blocks.

                I've gotten them at both the Rona on Notre-Dame near Atwater and at the Rona in Ville-St-Laurent at Le Bazaar shopping centre (or whatever it's called now.)

                Good luck!

                Yours in Woodflame Grill solidarity,

                  Was that recently? Because it seems hard to find nowadays.

                    No, I haven't had to buy a bag this year. Maybe try contacting the WoodFlame folks to find out who's carrying it these days?
