Here is some basic information about firewood.

Cord 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.

Full cord equals 4’ x 4’ x 8’ = 128 cu ft
½ cord equals 4’ x 4’ x 4’ = 64 cu ft
Ό cord equals 4’ x 4’ x 2’ = 32 cu ft

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 it’s best to use bigger wood. You’ll 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

We 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

ACACIA - these trees are in the same family as mesquite. When burned in a smoker, acacia has a flavor similar to mesquite but not quite as heavy. Is a very hot burning wood.

ALDER - Very delicate with a hint of sweetness. Good with fish, pork, poultry, and light-meat game birds.

ALMOND - A sweet smoke flavor, light ash. Good with all meats.

APPLE - Very mild with a subtle fruity flavor, slightly sweet. Good with poultry (turns skin dark brown) and pork.

ASH - Fast burner, light but distinctive flavor. Good with fish and red meats.

BIRCH - Medium-hard wood with a flavor similar to maple. Good with pork and poultry.

CHERRY - Mild and fruity. Good with poultry, pork and beef. Some List members say the cherry wood is the best wood for smoking. Wood from chokecherry trees may produce a bitter flavor.

COTTONWOOD - It is a softer wood than alder and very subtle in flavor. Use it for fuel but use some chunks of other woods (hickory, oak, pecan) for more flavor. Don't use green cottonwood for smoking.

CRABAPPLE - Similar to apple wood.

GRAPEVINES - Tart. Provides a lot of smoke. Rich and fruity. Good with poultry, red meats, game and lamb.

HICKORY - Most commonly used wood for smoking--the King of smoking woods. Sweet to strong, heavy bacon flavor. Good with pork, ham and beef.

LILAC - Very light, subtle with a hint of floral. Good with seafood and lamb.

MAPLE - Smoky, mellow and slightly sweet. Good with pork, poultry, cheese, and small game birds.

MESQUITE - Strong earthy flavor. Good with beef, fish, chicken, and game. One of the hottest burning woods.

MULBERRY - The smell is sweet and reminds one of apple.

OAK - Heavy smoke flavor--the Queen of smoking wood. RED OAK is good on ribs, WHITE OAK makes the best coals for longer burning. All oak varieties reported as suitable for smoking. Good with red meat, pork, fish and heavy game.

ORANGE, LEMON and GRAPEFRUIT - Produces a nice mild smoky flavor. Excellent with beef, pork, fish and poultry.

PEAR - A nice subtle smoke flavor. Much like apple. Excellent with chicken and pork.

PECAN - Sweet and mild with a flavor similar to hickory. Tasty with a subtle character. Good with poultry, beef, pork and cheese. Pecan is an all-around superior smoking wood.

SWEET FRUIT WOODS - APRICOT, PLUM, PEACH, NECTARINE - Great on most white or pink meats, including chicken, turkey, pork and fish. The flavor is milder and sweeter than hickory.

WALNUT - ENGLISH and BLACK - Very heavy smoke flavor, usually mixed with lighter woods like almond, pear or apple. Can be bitter if used alone. Good with red meats and game.

Other internet sources report that wood from the following trees is suitable for smoking:  BEECH, BUTTERNUT, FIG, GUM, CHESTNUT, HACKBERRY, PERSIMMON, and WILLOW.

Types of wood that is unsuitable or even poisonous when used for grilling. Don't use any wood from conifer trees, such as PINE, FIR, SPRUCE, REDWOOD, CEDAR, CYPRESS, ELM and EUCALYPTUS, as is the wood from SASSAFRAS, SYCAMORE and LIQUID AMBER trees.
