“After meeting the team at Cutting Edge Firewood and testing their products, making a switch was a no brainer. In the world of competition BBQ we use only the best meats, rubs, and sauces. Wood and it’s smoke is another key ingredient and CEF gives our team a competitive advantage plain and simple.”

“I first cooked over fire when I was 12 years old. In the 30 plus years since then I’ve never cooked over a cleaner or more efficient wood than the wood I get from Cutting Edge Firewood. Other woods I’ve used were simply a fuel source; the quality hardwoods from Cutting Edge Firewood are an ingredient, and I use this ingredient every time I fire up the grill.”

Superb experience with every aspect of the company. I ordered the smoking chunks variety pack for my husband's birthday. We have had some delicious food prepped with it on other occasions and we look forward to using our own now. The delivery was expedient (same day as ordered - in December no less) and customer service follow up the same day to boot. We earlier purchased their specially treated firewood and have enjoyed immensely the warmth provided by CE fires with family and friends. FYI, I never realized how nasty the firewood from the grocery store is until I used CE. It is so refreshing to deal with a company that specializes not only in providing superior products, but also in providing superior service. It really is a novelty to have something done correctly the first time, and to have it done with such quality.

Cutting Edge might be known for their firewood but their wood chunks for cooking might be even better! The chunks are much cleaner and more solid than anything I've used before, and produce a great smoke flavor on my Big Green Egg cooks. This is an easy way to take my smoked meat to a whole new level.

This place is my #1 go to for cooking wood, I saw an ad on facebook for them one day when I was in the middle of a cook and figured Id give them a try. My first order was for some 8" maple splits that I order to smoke a couple racks of Lamb ribs they have great prices and when you receive your order it comes in a box that says Cutting edge on it, maybe 3-5 days I recieved a hand written postcard from a gentleman named Leroy Hite who was sending me to tell me how much they appreciated my business! Every since then Ive given them my business for all of my cooking, smoking, and firewood needs 10/10 you guys rock and you have a return customer for life! I live in Michigan and they are in Georgia, they waisted no time getting me my order! I really appreciate you guys!

Great woods. Kiln dried definitely makes a difference. Strong smoke if you use it with charcoal for cooking. Cleaner burning if you use it for heat.

I don’t have a fireplace but I love cooking with charcoal and wood. I have an Ooni Karu 12, a PK original, and a PKGO which means I need chunks or mini logs since my cooking devices are small. Received my order of mini pizza wood from Cutting Edge and was ready for football Sunday. I used 2 mini wood pieces in the pizza oven (with charcoal) and had the oven at over 800F within minutes. For the second half, i threw on some wings and brats into the PKGO which was also up to temp with a few charcoal chunks and one mini wood piece.Overall, I am very pleased. Before today and Cutting edge, I was breaking down firewood logs by hand which is some good exercise, but sometimes you just want some good quality wood without the hassle. Cutting Edge definitely delivered. A++

I just wanted to take a minute to share my feedback. First, the quality of the wood is fantastic! Cut and split perfectly and dried to perfection. Second, I screwed up my order and bought the cooking logs instead of the smaller splits. I thought maybe it was something that happened on their end, but no it was me. I called to straighten it out and they offered to ship me two boxes of wood for free! You can't beat customer service like that! I will be buying all of my wood form them. Highly recommend!

A rare experience. Today, I was lit up by the kindness of a company that creates a great product. I wrote an earlier review saying after one fire I can say amazing wood, expensive but totally worth it if only the huge flood this week had not washed the box away. Today a new box was delivered to me by courier. I didn't ask. It was just given. That is extraordinary. Thank you for a rare kind of considerate customer service that accompanies a product that does what it says. And now back to open wood fire cooking. Wow.

We ordered the woods chunks to use with our smoker. We decided to try them this Thanksgiving to add some flavor to our smokedturkey! Wow! The taste was amazing and the comments from family were awesome! We will use it ever time we smoke meat!
