I ran out of wood last time I smoked and want to do a turkey this weekend, but don't want to drive over to Smoke n' Fire where I got my last bag of wood.

Anyone know of a good place to get some wood for smoking around Lees Summit or Raymore?

I hear trees make good wood.

Honestly read "wood" as "weed." I feel a spin-off thread coming on....

Was going to get apple, cherry, or pecan. I need some other stuff still anyway, so I'm going to run to smoke n fire today to get some to last me. Looked like the Woodshack place mentioned above is further than smoke n fire.

Going to do a turkey, been thawing since yesterday, will get the brine on it today, and then smoke it starting tomorrow morning.

Call the folks at Unity Village, ask if you can walk thru their apple orchard and pick up any fallen apple-branches. That's a pretty good place to look for mushrooms in the right season, too. When I lived closer, if I asked first they always were happy to let me 'forage'.

We just cut down a cherry tree in my backyard to make way for our addition. A buddy, who heats with wood year round, took the wood for helping me cut it down (I kept the butt and some of the big pieces to potentially mill into a piece of furniture or some lumber). I told him that there might be some actual money in the wood and he might want to look into selling it to a BBQer instead of just burning it.

So my question: how much does cherry sell for? It's already been cut into 12-14" sections. Hasn't been split yet.

Cherry is probably $3-400 a chord. If I were him, I'd trade the cherry for a couple chords of something else more suited for burning.

That was my feeling as well. I hate to see him just burn it up when I know there are other people who would get more use out of it. It's still got to season for a year or so, so we have some time to work a trade.

It would need to season for fireplace burning but smokers will burn it green.

Ahh, good to know.
