The hulls are somewhat spongy and from what I've read, make for a bitter smoke. The shells, on the other hand, make for good fuel for a foil smoke bomb.
The hulls for some reason give off a dark, greenish smoke that is not very good. It may be because the hulls contain a good amount of sap/oil in them that doesn't really dry out or season away like it does in the wood itself.

By hull do you mean the casing that surrounds the pecan nut or the hard pecan shell?
