Wood in New York City
I don't know if I want to reveal this.
But it is Christmastime.
No, I want this to be my secret. It's hard enough to find in Brooklyn.
But if more people know about it, then more people will buy it and it'll be more likely that the store will continue to stock it.
Oh, alright. Here goes....
Eagle Provisions, 628 5th Ave Brooklyn NY 11215 718-499-0026, besides stocking one of the largest and most diverse beer selections in New York, is selling Wicked Good Charcoal and wood chunks and chips from The Woodman!
I picked up some cherry wood - 3lbs for $7.99. They also stock hickory, oak, apple, olive, alder, wine barrel staves, ash and many more. No more searching the tri-state area looking for wood. I've found my source, even if it is a tad expensive.
Now I need to go cook something!
