The staff members at Four Seasons Firewood possess an encyclopedic knowledge of firewood and smoking wood, able to articulate each wood's properties the way a sommelier articulates a wine's flavors. They know which woods ignite the easiest, which release the best aromas, which burn the longest, and which are best for smoking meats or staking down sentient scarecrows. At any given time of year, Four Seasons' lot stocks ricks and cords of split oak, walnut, hickory, pecan, apple, and more, all available for pickup or delivery.
