Board - does anyone know of a source for wood chips/chunks in Baltimore CIty (or near-by)? BBQ Galore seems to have closed up shop and I need to do some smoking!!

    Walmart, Lowe's, Home Depot are the usual suspects. I'm also told that nurseries that sell seasoned firewood are possibilities, as long as someone there is knowledgeable about the variety sold.

      Bass Pro at Arundel Mills has good selection of sizes and types - chunks, chips; hickory, mesquite and fruitwoods.

          Yup. I bought a bag of apple chips at Giant this week.

          I'm curious about this place, but every time I've gone there they've been closed:

          As everyone else has said, I have no problem finding different types of chips at most home improvement centers or grocery stores. I am having a problem finding chunks. The chips are pretty much useless for the long low and slow that I've been doing lately. I never thought to look at Bass Pro.....I'll have to stop by.

            I bought some at Lowes (Columbia/near costco). They had apple and hickory chunks.

                Weber dealers would be a possible source. Most are the big hardware stores and walmarts, but there is an occasional independent dealer that might be close to you. You can search for dealers on their website.
