Can you use "green" pecan or cherry wood for smoking or does it need to cure?
The only wood I recall ever being specifically told to avoid using "green" is mesquite, because it will have a bitter smell and taste to it and will put a bitter "seasoning" that will not go away on/in whatever you burn it in. Rule of thumb two years curing on mesquite. I am no expert, this is just what I have been told.
So, what say yee great EggHead community? Are there other "green" woods to avoid?
