A fist-full of wood

We watched as the lady picked up a few pieces of split wood; each no larger than a brick. She then handed over several dollars to the man behind the counter. The scene was played over and over at the Soulard Farmers Market in St. Louis recently. The wood - cherry, hickory, pecan, etc. - was advertised as barbecue wood and priced at $1 a pound.
