    I currently trimmed my white peach tree four days ago about 10 pounds. How many days do I need to age it bark is removed. I have a Bradly smoker and would like to make my own bisquettes out of this I have watched and have read how to make these. What is the best way to chip it. I would think a wood chipper I have read they will pay for theirselves pretty quick. Any other ways you can chip besides this I have heard blinder or food processor.
     
  2. How long it will take to dry depends on how thick it is and temp and humidity. I chip wood with a chipper or a planer hooked to a dust collector.

    Nice looking car you have.

    Happy smoken.

    biggest piece it's all between 3 inch to 1/2 inchs most are small. Thank you for the response. The Tbucket is my husbands nice Vette.
     
  5. I would go at least 3 months and then give it a test burn to see what you think. In the test I would smoke something cheep. If you chip it you can put it out in the sun on a shinny cookie sheet and get it to dry pretty fast. 

    I do like the T-Bucket. I'm thinking you may have wider tires than I do. Mine are 15.5








    Happy smoken.

    Well I went and got a heavy duty blender it works for chips. But I don't know if it will work on my peach wood I don't know if I want to cut it up. If not I will probably be better off selling it and just go buy chips and make my own Bradly briquettes out of that.

      I used a miter saw to make sawdust that I made my bisquettes out of. Used some dry wood & some green wood. Green wood works better to make sawdust & also sawdust dries much faster than chunks when spread out and stirred once in a while. Have made more than 200 so far & have enough sawdust to make more than 500 more.
