sizes are regulated and must comply with industry standards. The best way
to be sure you are getting what you are paying for is to measure your firewood, which should be stacked neatly.

The best Firewood is seasoned, split & ready to burn. Wood cut lengths range
from approximately 16 to 18 inches in length and 2 to 4 inches in diameter. Be
sure to get your Firewood early because as the season progresses and the
winter's chill arrives, seasoned wood becomes hard to come by.
We have a large variety of hardwoods like oak, cherry, gum, pear, etc. Firewood
is a great way to heat your home, or have a camp fire, or create that special
romantic evening for your loved one. Kids love a warm fire as well!
We get requests for wood for smokers and Barbeque BBQ. If you are a wood smoker
and interested in smoking wood, please call us for availability 770-682-8733.
Here are examples of wood that are GREAT for smoking: apple wood, hickory wood,
cherry wood, maple wood, pecan wood, plum wood. Any wood that we have can be
chipped or sold as split wood.
Chips are small pieces of wood that are
great for quick, small bursts of smoke. Chips, even soaked in water will burn
up fast, create smoke and then disappear. If you are not smoking for a very
long period of time or if you only want a small amount of smoke flavor then go
with chips. Also make sure you have read the instructions for your smoker.
Some electric and gas smokers are designed to only handle wood chips.
Chunks or split wood on the other had are
large pieces of hardwood. Usually these pieces are best for creating
smoke over a longer period of time. If you are smoking for a while then its
best to use bigger wood. Youll get more smoke and you will get it over a
longer period of time without having to run out and add more every 30 minutes
found the following information on the internet and hope it helps when
choosing the right wood to use in your smoker or BBQ.
Reference guide for Woods used to Smoke Food

for fuel but use some chunks of other woods (hickory, oak, pecan) for more
