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?

For $100 in the Baltimore/ Washington area? It is probably a STEAL bro! You did great! that'll last you 2 seasons! Did you get a heavier wall firebox? Mine is insulated. It is AMAZING how little I burn! Can't wait to read your adventures with the flame! Buy alot of beer and get a buddy for those all night cooks. Or, get alot of coffee and prepare for alot of 3:00 am wake-ups . I love the neighborhood at that time! Woodrow

ps- Oak is GREAT on brisket. Maybe my second favorite behind apple.

GOOD NEWS! I sent the guy I bought the wood from an e-mail this morning, letting him know I didn't get what I paid for. He still hadn't cashed my check and tore it up!!! Don't really know what to say but thanks.

After seeing the brick paver "pit patio" you did... and then stacking all that wood I wouldn't call you lazy. Heck all that makes me feel like a slacker...
AND great looking steaks the other night... I wished you lived closer!
Thanks Jeff, she's definitely a helper!!! Shoot me some pointers when you get a chance, so I can prepare for the Gator!

Guess who's parents just had a large peacan tree cut down and didn't tell me about it until all the wood was gone. :-X
"What would you have done with it?" Arrrgggghh.

They have a few fruit trees also. Told them if they cut them down to call me. "What would you do with it?" Arrrgggghh.

Actually not much of it does make it their way.

Maybe there's something to your comment.
