Not sure that 6 months or so of drying would still make wood very "green".

The smoke flavor was delicate & consistent throughout the bird and rivaled some of the best smoked turkeys I've ever eaten.
Don't be afraid of green wood. Experiment with it until you get it right.
I understand what you're saying, and that's why I referenced a bed of coals giving you a 350* fire when using green wood for smoke.
