Where to get apple wood in the UK? - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Where to get apple wood in the UK?

    Greetings fellow woofers...

    Has anyone in the uk managed to find out where to get some decent apple wood?

    I'm thinking of heading up to Herefordshire (great cider country) and seeing if they fell their trees now and then and what they do with the wood.

    Anyone else tried this tack?

    When I lived in Michigan this was how we got a lot of our wood for smoker.

    As I recall - they orchard we knew marked the trees they wanted to take down - dead dying or diseased during harvest time - and circled back in the slow winter months to take them down and replant.

    Good luck - I love the smell of apple wood smoke - I should try and find some here - maybe in the mountains!

    My oven progress -

      I would think that Somerset (also great cider country) might be worth a look. I know a couple of folks that used to be down there. I will try and contact them and see if they have any ideas.
