Pizzone Wood Type
« on: September 01, 2017, 11:50:50 AM »
Hi everyone,

Very excited that my Pizzone gets in today! NO MORE UUNI!!! I'd love to get going with it as quickly as possible but realizing now that I've spent very little time until now actually thinking about wood sourcing. Please forgive my ignorance, but are there any other Pizza Party users that can talk about where they source their wood from? I'm assuming wood from Home Deport, Lowes, or most other consumer stores is a no-go correct? Should I be contacting firewood dealers?

Thanks a lot!

Christoph

You should have no problems finding someone who sells bulk firewood in NO. Any hardwood or fruitwood is fine. Oak is probably the best option - typically, it's about the lowest $/BTU. They type of wood likely won't make much, if any, difference in the flavor. The most important thing about the wood is that it's VERY DRY. Kiln-dried wood is ideal.

Craig, do you know a good source for dry wood in the Houston area?

 ??? Craig, Did you get hit with the water very much, A thousand year storm was what I heard for the area. Your posting, so I want to think you didn't get hit to hard. God Bless either way.

Thank you. We came through it OK, unfortunately many very close to us did not. Thankfully though most of the damage around here was limited property will little loss of life.

Best part about Terry's is that he keeps a bunch of wood stored indoors!  Nice guy and loves to talk.
 I'm down in LC and was fortunate enough not to flood.  Was close!
