I buy mine locally, but was checking out the Charcoal Store the other day and their prices include shipping and seemed reasonable to me. Think I may treat myself to a bag of their chunks soon.

BTW, they advertise here on BBQ Central as well. Tell them you heard of them here!

Put them in a dry area in a breathable container, like a milk crate, etc. The should not get moldy like that.

All I have right now is two bushels.


The rest is still on the hoof.



If you don't find any locally, then let me know.

oh yea there are plenty of trees in monetta but those pecan tree owners frown upon you cuttin limbs from a $6 a lb producer of pecans

i get the shells for free from a cracking house nearby but after awhile bugs get into the meat left over and the shells will mold also

I got a 5 gallon bucket full of pecan shells, already hulled, that I've had for 5 years kept in a dry place and they are still good to go. Today I filled up the back of my truck with pecan logs that I'm going to cut into chunks later this weekend,

What i really want is some cherry and apple without having to pay through the nose to get it in a bag, but like you said, people frown when you go chopping up their yard tree for bbq wood!!!

Wanna trade? I also got some good seasoned oak all chunked up.

Thanks Larry, Charcoal store looks good but I just went there and they do not seem to include shipping in their prices. Still gonna try them out though.
