It's good to go but I always stay away from the crabs.

If it's still green, I would let it cure for a good 6 months.. Other than that, use it up!

If it don't come off a smoker, it's just a side dish!

you'll be fine with crab apple - you just have to use it in a little smoker. :)

At our local Cal Ranch store, they have bags of chopped up wood for smoking. Is this a bad idea or should I go cut down a fruit tree and let it sit for a while?

It really depends on the smoker... For a WSM/UDS/BGE the chips/Chunks should be fine. For an Offset, look for the tree....
