    I would wait 3-5 months that's just me some say its ok
  3. I cut one down, split it, cut it into chunks (fist size) and within a week or so I was using them. I think if you cut it up and let it sit for a few days, theyll be good to go. Try it on ribs or pork. I grilled a couple of tbones with it too and it came out great. Enjoy!

    Ed, morning..... For best results.. cut it up and season it...  Are you using chunks and charcoal briquettes ??? Cut it into chunks and wait for several months, storing it with good air flow so it doesn't mold...   There is a search bar at the top of the page, that is very useful for some questions...

    Please take a moment and stop into " /Roll Call/   " and introduce yourself and get a proper welcome from our members.... Also, if you would note your location in your profile, it will help in the future when answering questions about smokin'...   elevation, humidity etc....    

    We're glad you stopped in and joined our group...    Enjoy the long smokey ride....     Dave

    I agree with DaveOmak. I have tried using wood that was not seasoned well and produced a bitter smoke. I used that same wood months later and got excellent results. It was not crab apple it was cherry but also experienced this with pecan wood as well.
