    Hi again :)

    Very much recommend that you use wood that has been cut up six months.
    The green stuff gives off a lot of white smoke!

    I concur, you should try to avoid green wood whenever possible. I find that it tends to leave a bitter/acidic taste on the meat. I have a rack in my garage that I stack the fruit wood on after it is cut and let it sit for 6 months or more. It's out of the way and has a chance to really dry out ....
