are lime tree trimmings good for smoking beef?

Thread Starter 

I have some freshly trimmed branches from my lime tree and I want to know if I can use them for smoking meat and if I can, what do I need to do to prepare them for smoking?

Did a quick google and found this on lime wood...

Medium smoke flavor with a hint of fruitiness.       Excellent with beef, pork and poultry.

Lime is fine for smoking. You will want to season the wood. If it was me I'd cut the wood into 2"-3" chunks and stick them in a nice dry area where there's good air circulation and let them dry out for 6-8 months.
