Hello, Early snow broke my mature apricot tree to a point it must be removed. I have waited until now to cut it as wanted it to be dorment. Now the question is how much of it is worth keeping for smoking? How small of twigs are worth using. Does the bark need to be stripped? And how long should it sit to dry before using? Any advise would be great! I'm in a arid climate so the wood will dry out quickly.
