I hope I am posting this in the right area.
This spring I will experiment with a smoker. I live in NY and right now we have snow all around the house and I wouldn't be able to use a smoker outdoors. In this area there are plenty of apple farms that during the winter they sell wood for fireplaces. I am wondering if I could use that type of wood in the smoker as "wood chips" for flavor. Of course the farmers sell larger pieces of wood that I will have to cut into smaller pieces.
Another point I am trying to make is that the bags of chips that you buy at the store or online may not be as natural as the ones that you can buy from the farmer.
