Default So who uses green wood to smoke?

New to the forum and own a firewood co. that services the neighboring three counties.We sell oak and Australian pine mostly for the grill.The only potential fruit wood would be citrus for us in S.FLorida and only if someone cuts one back.I understand the science behind green vrs. dry in the smoldering effect.So my question is is there that much of a difference between the two and what are some of your favorite woods and for what application.(Apple, cherry ect.)Thanks.

Apple and peach do well green, but the other woods need to be seasoned. I use apple (readily available in East TN) at home and peach in competition. I don't know anyone that is using Australian pine.

The wood we sell to the rests. is cured and mostly for the grills or pizza ovens.The Aussie. pine is more of an oak yet has the leaf that looks similar to a pine.They were brought to Florida way back when to absorb rainfall.Burns and looks the same as white oak yet more readily available.Have not used it to smoke and we deliver truck loads daily.

I'm no expert on this subject by any means, but a local bbq joint uses nothing but green hickory that the owner has delivered twice a week. He pre burns all of his wood down to coals first though. When done that way I don't think it would matter if the wood is green or seasoned.

I have used Aussie ( pine ) for smoking and fire pit cooking, it works fine, has a real mild smoke flavor. More like alder IMHO
