what part of houston do you live in?? there's a place in league city, south of houston that sells really good seasoned wood but i find him to be a little expensive. around $50 for what is about a 2x2x2 stack. there's also a place i believe called the woodchop on pinemont off of 290, but i haven't bought any from there. and i know there's a place right down the street from the gator pit facility where ritch buys his wood.

A 1/4 cord where I purchase from in Santa Fe is $75 and a cord is $240.

Not cheap.

Neither did I until I brought my Gator Pit. I have no regrets. Im trying to get a better deal with a new guy im buying down in Homestead. For now it is averaging out .92 cent per stick.
