Fleabay. Search 'smoking wood'. Loads of variety.

Either that or go see your local tree surgeon and make your own from a decent trimming. Just steer clear of where the cut is as there'll be a bit of chainsaw oil on it.

I made my own out of a recently chopped/fallen branch and a wood grater (just like grating cheese!) - with a tool like this: http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2435/3702834347_f24eee45b8.jpg?v=0

Just to note, as the wood dries out it gets harder (or it does with hardwoods like oak anyway!)....so don't leave it too long before grating. Even the really small bits of wood I have will last a really long time, so no need to get too much!

most big tackle shops do them, i'm also 99% sure ive seen them in tesco with the bbq stuff, might be getting a bit late in the year now tho?

i know this sounds strange, try local pet shops, pets at home etc as think its used for some animal bedding aswell
Bedding sawdust is softwood and definately NOT suitable for smoking, the result will taste horrible. You need hardwood sawdust like oak.

Any local timber merchants sell diffarent types of wood. just ask. you can buy a lump of wood and make the shavings yourself.
As a chef i sometimes smoke things at work. one thing t try is tea bags too, herbal ones, theres a whole variety of flavours and experiment with dryed herbs and crushed nuts and fruit skins and zests etc. use imagination. good luck.

I just bought some wood dust from Veals online. It was 2.49 a bag and should last about 10 sessions. Tried it out today and the mackerel tasted fantastic. The wood is beech.

I also smoked a couple of razor clams and they tasted great too.
