Default I got green wood....

No pun intended. I got a bunch of free apple wood this week. Nice big logs, it's pretty wet. I own a UDS and an Akron kamado. I use lump charcoal and a couple of chunks of wood when I cook.

My question is wait for it to cure or use it green?

Thanks for your help!!!

You need to go handle that my brutha. No need to let it get to that point.

If you don't "cure" your green wood, don't be surprised if it falls off..... er, I mean, out of the wood rack....

If you cut it up into chunks first you can get away with 3 months. Just let it have good air circulation and make sure it is under some kind of roof/shelter.

I cut out an apple tree for a relative last year and I took a couple hundred pounds of it to use in my smokers. I cut it down to size and chopped it into chunks with a hatchet. Mine was ready to use in about 4 months after cutting it down.

You can speed the process along by cheating a little if you want to. When you are cooking low and slow on one of your grills or smokers, toss a couple of those apple chunks on the grill grate with the food for several hours and it will dry them out well enough to use a lot quicker...

If you experience green wood for more than 4 hours, seek medical attention. (Or call your wife/girlfriend, maybe both) On a side note, cut it split it and let it dry. Once you see the ends of the wood start to "check" it'll be ready. Good luck with your green wood!

Start the grill up and turn it into a kiln and speed the drying process up.. Just a thought !

That thread title made me chuckle a bit. All processes mentioned above work quite well. What I always did that helped speed it up was throw a couple of pounds of silica gel in my wood shed and that took about two months off!
