Gator Fuel!!

Picked up "2 cords" of oak for the hopefully soon arrival of my new Gator. I know a cord is 4' wide x 4' high x 8' long, but I haven't measured this. Does this look like 2 cords of wood? Close??

Looks like 2 "face" cord. There are 3 face cords in 1 cord of wood.
That ought to get you started!!!

That is not two cords.
Two cords would be 8' long by 8' wide by 4' high, they owe you a bunch of wood. I'd guess at least that much or more.

Okay, so tell me how much I got ripped off. I paid $100 for it from a guy at work. Should I be really upset, or is a $100 a fair price for what I got even though it's not 2 cords?

Around here it's about $50 a face delivered green. Thats if you buy a 6 face minimum. Yours looks nice and seasoned so you did ok.

that ain't a cord down here. Looks good though. For your smoker, you're good. You don't have a fireplace though, do you?
