I got some OAK that's been split for about 2 months now. It's stored in a closed garage. Temp in there probably gets in the 90's during the summer. How much longer do I need to wait before I can start smoking with it?

Id wait a few more months. Even after the ends of the wood start to crack and darken, it can still hold a lot of moisture inside.

I agree 5-6 months minimum. You could probably set an old fan on low in front of the pile if you are in a hurry, or just buy some lump, almost all lump charcoal is oak.cool.gif

Six months is a good target especially since it's split and kept in a dry area. If you can, I'd wait even longer but six months will probably take care of it.

Richoso1, It looks to be red..has a reddish hue to it.
I don't need it right now so it can cure on it's own but I was just wondering the time frame. Thanks to all that replied.
