Smoking wood chips

Teknotic Mar 24, 2011 12:28 PM

Does anybody know .of a good local source for smoking chips that has a wide variety? Or at least a place to find a different type of wood beside mesquite?

    If you want a really extensive selection of different woods--and you're willing to pay shipping (which isn't as bad as you might think)--try Barbecuewood.com http://www.barbecuewood.com/

    He's located in Yakima--I've never tried it, but if you're over that way and want to pick up an order, it might be worth asking if that could be arranged.

      The Aquaquip stores had a good selection. Not sure they are the least expensive, but certainly a variety of 'flavors' to choose from.

        Head over to Sutter Home & Hearth on old Ballard Ave. They have a great selection of chips and chunks for smoking. I smoke meats quite often and always find everything I need there.

          Most garden centers near me stock a good supply. I can get apple, cherry, maple, hickory, and more. Even Home Depot has started stocking a good variety. The cost is usually about $4-$5 for a good-sized bag (enough to last me about 8 hours of smoking time).
