FAQs

Q27: Please explain the difference between Restaurant Quality Grillwood and Homeowner / Backyard BBQ grillwood.

    A:  Backyard BBQ Grills: Generally burn 12″ – 18″ Length X 3″-5″ Diameter wood. Restaurants: Use 22″ Length X 6″ – 7″ Diameter (always green) wood.

Q26: Can I purchase multiple products such as 4×8 Hickory / 4X8 Oak and realize cord pricing?

    A:  Products are sold and priced separatley.

Q25: How do you construct a fire?

    A:  Building a fire is a graduated effort. You need a 1) Constant ignition source such as a gas fire starter, wax log or fatwood, 2) Small wood chips, twigs, bark kindling and 3) Seasoned wood. Place your ignition source on your grate first. Add the smaller of the following on top of the ignition source: wood chips, bark, twigs or kindling. Light the ignition source. After you realize a decent blaze add larger twigs, chips and/or chunks of wood. Add / burn smaller pieces of wood until you have some heat and coals in your firebox. Add small logs, leaving room for air to pass through as the heat/fire grows. Graduate to larger logs as the heat, blaze and coals increase. Don’t jam all the logs in a tight parallel fashion as this constricts airflow. Keep the logs in a loose configuration with space for air.

Q24:What is the best way to season Firewood / Grillwood?

    A:  Stack the logs off the ground. A firewood rack works best. Place the rack on high ground away from areas that see a lot of water. Moisture can actually cause your wood to fall, damaging your fence or other property. The wood will season best in direct sunlight with cut ends facing north and south. Did you know that the wind blows North or South the majority of the time?

Q23:Do you know where I can purchase a chip box for my gas grill?

    A:  Yes, We have several retailers in the DFW area that we support. Just shoot us a note or give us a call and we will help you find what you are ISO

Q22:Do you refurbish and repair BBQ Pits?

    A:  Yes, We can add features and functionality to your new, used or old BBQ. If you have purchased a pit that needs a few extras, tune up or if you have an old pit that’s in need of some TLC we can fix it up for you.

Q21:Do you cut wood?

    A:  Yes, We take down trees in the DFW area and on our land in East Texas. If you have a tree that needs to be taken down please contact us.

Q20: I haven’t used Cherry for BBQ. Is Cherry fruit wood a good choice?

    A: Everyone knows about apple but nobody has heard the NEWS! Cherry is an amazing finisher. It works best with pork and chicken. Our first Wild Cherry experience: Smoked a few pork loins on my pit in front of my house and for two weeks every time I passed my BBQ pit to get in the truck I started salivating. It’s that good!

Q19: Do you have Hickory BBQ Wood in stock?

    A: We have seasoned and green hickory in stock in bulk and we offer 4 different sized bags

Q18: Where does the wood come from?

    A:  We source our wood from DFW, all over Texas and beyond. Pinon is harvested in higher elevations such as NM. Cherry and apple comes from northern states, Mo, Il, Ia, etc. Most oak, hickory and pecan are harvested locally within 100 miles of Prosper.

Q17: I’m not real sure what I want. Can I come out and look around?

    A:  Absolutely. We would enjoy having you out. Call to schedule.

Q16: For a Firepit. Tell me a little about the different species?

    A:  Outside of seasoning and aroma, density is the main difference between the species. The softest wood that we carry is Pinon and we graduate from there up the scale from cherry, apple, mesquite, pecan, oak and the hardest is hickory. There are other wood species harder than hickory such as bois d arc but I don’t carry Osage orange.

Q15: For a Firepit I want wood that smokes very little, what species do you recommend?

    A:  Any wood species doesn’t smoke/smoke very little if: 1) The wood is seasoned. The fire is constructed properly. start with a small amount of dry wood chips, limbs or kindling. Add a little larger logs as the heat/fire grows. Graduate to larger logs when there is a good source of heat/fire to ignite the logs. Air flow needs to be factored in as you build the fire. Tepee shaped logs burn the best. Don’t jam all the logs in a tight parallel bunch as there is no open area for air.

Q14: For a Firepit what wood smells the best?

    A:  Everyone has their own preference as each product has a very distinct aroma: Pinon – Strong pine aroma – Smells like the mountains; Cherry – smells like a cherry coke or cherry pie; Hickory – Earthy smell (some people say like bacon but bacon is hickory smoked so bacon actually smells of hickory. Pecan – Smells like candy

Q13: Do you stock seasoned firewood year round?

    A:  We stock all products year round however we encounter unforeseen circumstances. The 2010 Winter – ice and snow storms depleted the firewood stock all over the DFW Metro area. We were one of the few retailers out delivering the entire week of the storm.

Q12: What’s the best way to ensure I have ample firewood for the winter season?

    A:  Consider purchasing all you need before winter. We have our firewood discounted 28% starting in March 2010. With fuel prices on the rise my prices may change soon as well. Each season I drop my prices in the spring and return them to normal September 1st

Q11: What is a face cord?

    A: “Face Cord” is an unofficial term. Responses to this question vary greatly but a face cord equals every “Full Cord”, Stack measurement outside of the log length. Logs are usually cut 18′ – 20′ for today’s modern firebox and you will discover that the retailers in this region sell “Face Cords” consisting of 16″-18″ adding up to approximately 96 Cubic Feet. A “Full Cord” is 128 cubic feet of wood. This stack measures 16′ Long, 4′ High and the logs are cut in 2′ lengths. Please bear in mind that there are many ways to interpret these terms and stack the wood.

Q10: Why do retailers sell face cords?

    A:  There are many opinions here from loggers, retailers, wholesalers and homeowners. We believe it all started with the track homes and small fire boxes. As a wholesaler / retailers we think of WalMart. You see very few XL gloves and size 13+ shoes because they don’t fit the general population. We purchased more than 300 cords last season and need market every log to any household. We will be the first to admit that some cutters tend to cut corners by processing shorter wood, dead wood, etc. At All Seasons Firewood we process only the finest forestry products 18″ – 22″.

Q9: Do you discount if we pickup?

    A:   If you choose to pick-up the product cost is the same.

Q8: Do you deliver to condos and apartments?

    A:  Yes, but we don’t climb stairs with wood. We can drop the wood near the truck and/or you can strike a deal with my hired hands if you so choose.

Q7: What are your hours?

    A:  We don’t keep set hours at this time as my work load / tasks vary daily.

Q6: Do you discount your products?

    A:  Yes, March 1st we discounted all Forestry products approximately 18%. With fuel prices inclining prices may follow suit.

Q5: I have a ( Pecan, Oak, Walnut, Hickory )tree is it worth a lot of money?

    A:  Well yes and no. After the tree is felled, blocked, split and handled 5 or 6 times you can make a few dollars. The labor, equipment and process of removing the tree is exponentially more expensive than the firewood value. Most loggers / cutters are interested in larger tracts of at least 5 acres. It’s expensive to pay for fuel, equipment and labor to take down small tree(s). You will most likely pay to have the tree removed. Technical jobs are more expensive than dropping the tree.

Q4: Are you talking about a technical tree job? What is that?

    A:  Felling a tree is making a few cuts and dropping the tree in one piece. A technical job is required when there are obstacles that inhibit one to drop a whole tree. I don’t perform technical jobs.

Q3: Can I stack my firewood anywhere in the yard?

    A:  A Firewood Rack is a great investment for many reasons (See my FW Rack page). You need to the position the rack and/or wood on a flat, dry, sturdy surface, preferably somewhere available to a large truck. Putting the wood on a hill or in an area that experiences a lot of moisture is a safety hazard, can cause damage to your home, fence or shrubs. Some retailers charge to unload the wheelbarrow to the tune of $60 a cord.

Q2: Do you upcharge when you encounter the above situation?

    A:  We don’t have any hard and fast rules but basically, it comes down to economics. Our products are priced competitively . Profitability is affected by adding extra labor, fuel, excessive travel and delivery time. I have been known to assess a fuel or labor charge.

Q1: How far do you deliver?

    A:  It depends on our schedule. If we have time and we can fit you into the schedule we will travel 50 miles. (Fuel Charge may apply).
