Where to find Wood chips for smoking on the BBQ?

Canadian Tire has packed away the wood chips for the year so where else in Vancouver are they available at this time of year?

    Steveston Marine 1667 West 5th. between Fir & Pine street (poor selection and high prices).

    Army & Navy downtown Vancouver fishing dept downstairs-New West store too.

    Berry's Bait & Tackle Westminster Highway Richmond.

    Nikka Industries Steveston Village fishing dept upstairs.

      The Cook Shop at City Square (12th & Cambie) has them, and a pretty interesting selection too. Be prepared to shell out, though...

          I found wood chips at Army & Navy in New Westminster. Smokehouse brand, cherry and hickory. Each has some alder mixed in. 3.96 litre bags at $4.49 each. I'm going to try the cherry tonight.

      Kerrisdale Lumber has all there year round BBQ supplies. They carry both wood chips and wood chunks. If I recall they have maple, cherry, hickory, mesquite. When you go ask for Rez and tell him Ron who owns the Primo Oval sent ya.

          Thx grayelf. Canadian Tire and Walmart beside Vancouver Film Studios have wood chips. At Walmart the wood chips are in the sporting good department in the fishing section.

        Sportsman's Exchange should have wood chips, too.
        Our local grocers have wood chips with the charcoal
        and starter.

        I keep four bags of hickory and Jack Daniels barrel chips
        in the garage just for these kind of emergencies. Be pre-
