Fresh Apple Wood from Farm

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 


So I just got back from a local tree farm and I now have these two large branches for $6. They were cut down last fall, still very heavy!!

What do I do with these so I can use it in my Brinkmann smoker?

Thoughts?

You can cut them down to Disk size pieces, that will let them dry quicker.

Cut them into 3 inch lengths and split those into one inch(more or less) pieces. Once this is done the apple is ready to use as smoke wood on a charcoal fire. I prefer to use apple while still green if I can. You can also dry them before you use them, cut and split like this they will be dry in 2-4 weeks depending on storage conditions. I just got a milk crate full from a friend myself. Good Luck.

Bark or no bark?

Lastly, how thick should the disks be when I cut them?

I would say 1 1/2 " would be good if you can get that small. Then you can chop the disk if needed
