Default Pecan Wood Rounds

Had an awesome 4th at my buddies house - first time in a LONG time I wasn't the one doing the cooking :) Don't get me wrong I love love love BBQing it UP! but getting to take a break now and then is a good thing.

Anyways, they had cut some limbs off a Pecan tree a few months back and stacked it up for me. I picked it up last night. The lengths are good at around 12" long but the thickness is between 3-4" on most of the pieces with bark still on. My new pit I run with 3-4" diameter pieces. Bark looks grey but no signs of mold or anything. Anyone have any issues using pecan wood rounds?

With that "super pit" you have I think they will work fine. If you have any trouble getting to TBS after adding a couple just hit them with a splitting maul - they will ignite and get past the white nasty faster.
