This is my apple tree that is in my backyard, and I was wondering if all types were suitable for smoking. I have no idea what variety it is, aside that it's fruit grows in summer time in southern California. I've heard various sources talk about smoking with green fruit woods, some say no it has to be seasoned, etc all gets kinda confusing. So my question is would this be good for smoking and will it most likely taste different from apple woods you get from say a hardware store in chip form. Also, if I need to season it will cutting the trimmed branches into little 1-inch cylinders cut down on the time to season it? Thanks!
