Wood question

  1. I trimmed some apple trees last week.  The wood is very green.  Do I have to let it dry (season)  before I can use it to smoke ?

    i would say yes it would have to be seasoned. I do remember reading some of older post on here about it.

    Yes, Apple needs a year of curing. Too much Creosote forming liquids in it being green.
