Went to a friends hunting camp this past weekend for some R&R. While there, he cut me a piece of apple, hickory, and cherry from trees on his property. The apple and cherry still have green leaves on it, the hickory had fallen a while back.
My question is, do I need to wait for this to dry out before using to smoke with on the egg? or is it ok to use it when it is green?
Should I remove the bark and only use the interior wood, or does it matter?
I've never used apple or cherry before, whats the best thing to cook that will really show off the apple and/or cherry flavor?
