Trying to source some hardwoods in the Albuquerque area for my potential future WFO. I've only bought very small portions of hardwoods bbq'ing in the past and I usually just get it from guys selling it on the street corners. No real connections or good sources for wood.
I looked on Craigslist which only produced 1 seller and he wants an obscene amount for oak, hickory, and mesquite. I mean really obscene prices since he processes them into small chunks.
He does have other seasoned hardwoods that he is willing to sell at firewood prices, $165 for 1/2 cord and $290 for a full cord. He has aspen, elm, and mulberry.
I did a quick google search and found this firewood btu guide.http://www.thelograck.com/firewood_rating_chart.html
It looks like mulberry might be my next best option if I can't find a decently priced oak source.
1) has anyone burned aspen, elm, or mulberry in their WFO for pizza? Or anything else for that matter. The more options the better.
2) Will these hardwoods impart any funky flavors into my pizza? There seems to be some controversy as to whether or not woods will impart any smokiness flavor to pizza, but is this true regardless of the type of woods used.
I know better to stay away from woods that contain sap so I'm passing on the pinon and alligator juniper.
