Hi everyone. Just wondering if anyone knows where to get oak wood chips for smoking in the GTA. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Dickson Pro Hardware (2028 Avenue Road) has a bbq annex that sells chips and chunks of several wood types.

      Canadian Tire usually has a variety of wood chips. Also I remember Vaughan Mills having a large selection. I'd call ahead to confirm whether or not they have oak.

        On that, make sure you're stocked up with wood chips, charcoal, etc. Crappy Tire tends to squirrel all of it away about now till next late spring.

          Kagemusha's answer probably suits you best since you'e both west-enders. If you find yourself east of Yonge, you can get oak chips year-round at Sobie's Barbecues.

            There is a place near us called GrillTime at 62 Laird Drive -- www.grilltime.ca (on Laird about 8 or so short blocks south of Eglinton E.) I don't know if they carry oak chips, but they do carry many types of wood chips as well as various other BBQ related products. Might be worth calling them to first to find out. Hope this helps.

                The only problem with Ontario Gas & BBQ is that you walk in for wood chips and you walk out with so much gear you need a U-Haul to cart it all home.

                OG&BBQ is like Ikea on crack.

                  I only take cash and a very short list. Make that very little cash.
