Wood source in N San Diego county CA?

Hey folks,
We just moved to northern coastal San Diego county CA. We only know my son & his family. Was all over Amazon and all of their wood is kiln dried (what the heck?).
Does anyone know of any sources for wood splits to feed my smoker in my area?
Thanks in advance!
JD

    I like ordering from Fruita wood, very good quality stuff. I always get chunks but they have the option of splits.

    I don’t know how it is elsewhere, but folks around here play fast and loose with their definition of a cord. Things like “whatever fits in your truck bed is a cord” , “a face cord is the same as a cord”, etc. Pricing is all over the place.

    For sure, typically it’s a truck load, I buy enough to know what a chord is, even when dumped out of the back of a tilt trailer it typically exceeds what a proper chord is, but then I make Sue if that before handing cash…. dept of weights and measures really watches that stuff ( advertising wise) in Ca

    Thanks!
    This looks about perfect. Mini splits seem perfect size for KBQ.
    I was going to order some cherry & some post oak. 
    I’m wondering how long shipping will take.
    I’ll call when they open.
    Ill let you know,
