This past Thanksgiving I made the best Turkey ever (according to the rave reviews), using a 1/2 bag of charcoal as a base fire, I cooked the bird for 5.5 hours on nothing but partially seasoned (cut this past spring) peach wood.

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

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.
