Where Do You Buy Uncommon Smoking Woods?

Where do you buy uncommon smoking wood? I've read two recipes for a wood that starts with K and is used for chicken in the last few weeks but I can't remember the whole name. It's part age but mostly that I am a Foodie and read lots of recipes.

Figgered out is was most likely Hiwayawn just by the sound of it. They also have some kinda version of Mesquite over there. I forget the name right now but it is speeled funny too.

Well if I was wanting some good mesquite I just have somebody send me some from Corpus. They got the best.

Re: Where Do You Buy Uncommon Smoking Woods?

My favorite uncommon wood to use is coffee wood. I like mixing it in with hickory or apple wood during a smoking session.

There is an outdoor/BBQ store right outside of Charlotte that carries a good selection of woods (albeit pricey since they're the only ones around with any sort of selection outside the normal hickory/mesquite).

Somebody sent me some free coffee wood one time. Did not smell bad at all. Also got some januine Irish dried peat. That aint an unpleasant flavor when burnt item either. Cant recall that is was overwhelming wonderful by any means.

Well if it like any other lump charcoal in the world will predict it not going to impart much if any flavor to the meat. Its simply a heat source and the goal is to find the least unpleasant. Thats why I use electricity. Got some on my doorstep as we speak. Quite a bit cheaper than the lackonookie stuff from Hiwaya.
