Why Choose Fruita Wood & BBQ Supply???

Because we care about the quality of ALL our products.

ALL our wood is stored inside a climate controlled warehouse. Other companies store their wood outside subjecting them to the elements. This includes wind blown dirt, insects, bird and animal feces, or other debris accumulating in the bark. This can be what causes the bitterness associated with the bark.

Our humidity levels as well as the temps are maintained to preserve the natural moisture in the fruit woods. The Bourbon Barrel wood benefits from this tremendously. The Barrels came to us "Just back from the Distillery". The staves still mark the moisture penetration of its previous contents. The smell is intoxicating!! The conditions will preserve them.

We believe in giving back to the community and the BBQ World

ABOUT OUR WOOD

Some companies will remove the bark to hide the age of the wood. Wood that has been sitting around for months even years will collect dirt, bugs, cobwebs, and other debris in the bark. Not only will the the debris build up alter your flavor, but so will the age of your wood.

If you want the bark removed, just ask. We will be happy to do it for you.

FRESH WOOD IS BETTER!!

Our wood doesn't get that opportunity to dry out and collect debris. We have fresh wood that has been stored properly. This ELIMINATES the possibility of any dirt, bugs, cobwebs and other debris from altering your flavor profile.

We will remove the bark from any of our products upon request, and at NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE. We feel that most varieties don't need the bark removed due to the freshness of the wood.

Occasionally, we will run into some wood that has dirt, mud or other debris which was brought in from transportation. We actually take the time to pressure wash this wood to remove any of the impurities that may have been deposited during transit to our facility.

You spend good money on great pieces of meat, great spices to make rubs, and thousands of dollars on state of the art smokers.

Why waste all this on old dried out wood that wont provide the flavor. Wood is an ingredient too.

We offer wood in the following sizes in ALL varieties:

CHUNKS - Approx 2 1/2"-3" thick by 2 1/2" - 3 1/2" across.

MINI-SPLITS - 5 1/2" - 6" long and are about 2 1/2" - 4" across. (equal to 2 chunks)

SPLITS - These are 12" long and 2 1/2-4" across. Only available in 30 & 50 lb Boxes & 500 lb Wholesale Lot.

500lb Wholesale Lots Shipped FedEx or Old Dominion Freight 5 day delivery time.

Sizes are approximate and will vary slightly depending on variety of wood.

Why we sell by weight and not volume

Simple, moisture content determines how much smoke you will get from the wood. (this is why kiln dried bagged woods tell you to soak prior to using. Something you will NEVER have to do with our wood.) When the wood is at its freshest, it will be heavier, and you will need to use less wood. As it naturally dries out you will need more wood to continue to get that same flavor. Therefore, as the wood get lighter you will be receiving more to make up for the lost moisture and need to add more. Be assured that once our wood gets below a certain moisture percentage, we will no longer sell it. It becomes firewood.

Moisture readings are taken regularly, and only the wood within our Moisture Percentage Requirements are shipped.

BEWARE of *DEPOT and *Mart Stores bagged woods. These packages have been sitting in hot warehouses for months at a time drying out. They have NO VALUABLE MOISTURE AND NATURAL SUGAR CONTENT. This moisture gives the true flavor to your meat.

Our boxes are hand package which allow us to inspect each piece for any bugs, or blemishes that could jeopardize the flavor of the meat you are going to smoke.

Wonder why most Depot and Mart packaged woods are in sealed plastic bags? Its because these packages of wood contain NO moisture. If they did the wood will mold while sitting in these bags. Our woods are shipped in boxes which allow them to breath. We offer a free MESH bag to store them in just for asking for one. We also recommend you store your wood in a cool damp place. Especially our Peach and Apricot wood. Our wood is shipped at its premium state of flavor. Keeping the wood in a refrigerator or in a cool basement will help preserve this premium state.

Once you try our woods you will never buy from a *DEPOT or you local *Mart Super Centers again.
