Default Wood help

Hi all. Been ages since I posted. Looking forward to getting back with the group.

I had to cut some fairly big limbs off my pecan tree and my gray ash tree. I took the pecan and cut it into chunks and put it in a big bucket.

How long will it take to season since it is chunked in 2-3 inch wide pieces?

Also, is gray ash good for smoke or should I just use it in the fireplace?

With chunks that small a couple of months in the sun should work. A guy I know swears he gets better smoke & flavor with green pecan.

As far as the ash goes, I'm gonna use some tonight for my brisket.
