Good Price on Hickory?

I have a line on some unseasoned split hickory. 1/2 cord for $75 and literally 2 minutes from my house. Good price? Hickory is tough to find in NE Ohio.

Sounds like a good deal to me. Chum down here who sells firewood to the yups was getting way over 200 bucks a cord for seasoned split oak last winter and that was the price if you picked it up yourself. I think he has about got out of the delivery bidness. No telling whut it gonna run this year but nearly bet it aint going down.

There is a wood yard near here that sells split oak for .03lb. He said he will start saving the hickory for me. Load, weigh and pay is the way to go here.

Well that's a major bummer....I'm lucky to have shag bark hickory all over around here.

There are several different types of Hickory, all good for smoking...some but not limited to:
shagbark hickory
shellbark hickory
white hickory
bitternut hickory (used for tools and baseball bats...extremely tight grain)
mockernut hickory
pignut hickory
king nut hickory
pecan
walnut

check a link and familiarize yourself with the bark and leaves and look around......I bet you find it right around you in Ohio....

You would be surprised how much you can load up just picking up dead wood along sides of dirt roads.... if you know what you're looking for. With permission most land owners will let you saw up whatever is downon ground on their property for free.

I hope some of this helps you , or anyone else. Hickory is basically everywhere on the eastern 1/2 of the U.S. probably stopping in Georgia in the South and East of the Mississippi

Great info...thanks! I am actually getting about 3/4 cord delivered for $100 which I think is pretty reasonable.
