I just scored on two apple trees from a friends place. I chopped them up and brought them home to stack. What's weird to me is it smells a little fishy or odd. Come to find out the trees were growing in a drain field. I don't know what fresh cut apple wood smells like anyway but a trailer of this stuff is kinda strong. Is it safe to cook with in a stick burner once it's seasoned? Does the wood smell this way because of where it was groing? Any help is greatly appreciated. It was a lot of work but I don't want to cook with bad wood.
