Oh happy day!
I finally found some apple wood and it was free. Only one catch...it was mixed in with a little peach wood and some plum wood. I really can't tell which is what by looking. There is a small family orchard about a half hour north. I called them on day and asked if they had any clippings left from pruning this winter. They said to come get all I wanted.
I can't haul much at a time and didn't have tools when I went yesterday, but I did get a load and used some of it to grill pork chops last night. There's still a large pile and some of it is big enough to use so I'll be going back for seconds soon.
