Is this Hickory

Les grabbed this wood from his brother's house but isn't sure if it's hickory or something else. Can anyone help us identify it? We want to smoke some meat tomorrow and don't have any other wood for it.

Thanks!

Allie,

The first pic looks like Ash. When you cut into it I think you will be able to tell right away if is of is not.

Here is a close up pic of hickory bark.

Thank you, Cliff! All we knew is that he has some hickory and sugar maple. Les just grabbed what he thought looked like the pictures.

Looks more like hard (sugar) maple to me. But then again, there are several types of hickory. But if that's shag bark hickory, it's a young tree as the strips of bark aren't very long or defined.
