Hi all, I was just checking this site yesterday found it interesting so thought I'd join. I got a charbroil propane smoker for chistmas. I used it about 5 times so far so good. I modified it a bit. I add bread pans of water to bottom shelf and fill the whole bottom with wood chips. So what brought me to the site was i drove by an apple orchard yesterday and saw they were trimming the trees for this year and thought I should stop and ask if I can take a bunch of cuttings and dry them for next year. Then I wouldn't have to pay outrageous prices at the store for the chips. Any suggestions as to the drying process? Should I cut the pieces small? just take twigs?
