Depends on if you are using it in a pit, if it is not dry all the way you will have problems, I have a half of barn loaded with cherry from this winter with good air circulation, the pieces are cracking, but inside is still wet. I go by weight, wet cherry is very heavy while dried cherry is really light. If you put it in a pit, you can tell if there is still moisture in it as you will see the ends weeping moisture and steam.
(just guessing but I think mine will be ready in a few more weeks, hopefully by Aug 1st.)
