Wood

I cut up some pecan back in Oct. I sliced the limb up into small pcs. I am really wanting to use some of it but I am not sure if three months is enough time to season. I busted some of it down and it split ok with my little axe. I was hoping the bark would turn loose easily but no go.

What say ya'll ?

About 9 more months and you should be good to go Cliff.

Cliff you will know when it's ready when you start to see hairline cracks in the pieces of wood.

When it's warm out put the wood in a milk crate and put them up in your attic for a week or so and it will dry them right out.

Well I been chunking up some some fairly small diameter pee can limbs (2"-3") which aint got much age on it..maybe a month or two older than whut you got. Using it just for smoke production and it doing just fine. I vote for burning a chunk or too and give it a whiff test. If it smells good..should be ok.

with a hot fire and char it all

I am only using it for smoke. I may do some ribs with a couple of chunks next week.

How long was it down when you "busted it up?"
