Hi all, I had about half of a crab apple tree die on me last year around Sept/Oct. I let it sit all winter and I've cut it down. It's very dry, so I'm excited to use it for my first attempt of smoking apple (I've previously smoked with oak, mesquite, pecan and hickory).
Here's my question for you with much more experience than me: What part of the tree is "smokeable"? I mean, is the 1 inch branch just as good as the 3 - 4 inch trunk? I figure it's all apple wood so it must be fine. Is my logic correct? I've got several 1/2 inch to 1 inch branches that I like to use, I don't want it to go to waste. But I also have a good length of 3 - 4 inch trunk that I can cut up.
Thanks in advance!
