    If your storing it inside it will last a long time as it should all be hardwood. Personally i dont use any wood in my smoker if there is any fungus or mold on it...and i often get that if its outside under a tarp (my heating wood pile). So now i split all my smoker wood for the year when i am making my firewood and split it small (think chunks) and keep it in my garage in milk crates.

    well it's like everyone has said wood don't really go bad it's wood. As long as you keep it free of bugs and it doesn't rot away you can smoke with it.
