Good afternoon everyone, and happy smoking!
I am just grilling some burgers this afternoon, but I am planning my next smoke.
Today's question: I have a Black Walnut tree in my back yard that desperately needed to be trimmed. I have a few branches six inches thick, and many that are thinner. I am assuming that walnut, as a hardwood, would work nicely in my smoker. How long should I let it season? I plan to cut it into pieces that will fit in my firebox and stack it out behind the shed until it is dry enough to split and burn.
A related question: Is Red Maple usable for smoking?
Thanks for the help.
Edited to add: I had not explored the site well enough to find the wood for smoker section. I found my answer, thanks
