Green wood for smoking? My fishing bud gave me some apple wood branches today and I was not sure it could be used b4 it is seasoned/dry. Would like to use it for a butt cook. Thanks for ya'lls opine. Hard to find Apple in this neck of the woods.

    Do a test and let us know. Maybe something like chicken breast. Easy and not expensive if it doesn't work.

    Let us know.

    GG...in central Al we have a lot of peach, crab apple and not too many just plain Apple trees. My friend planted some Apple trees to see if they would survive and since they have the deer love him and the fruit from his trees. Bob

    I would bet he gets a lot of deer.

    Most of the deer here are up in the high mountains especially this time of year.

    They are getting fewer and fewer, but we do have large cherry, peach and apple orchards north and south of here.
