    Proper aging for wood

    I understand that wood needs to dry about four or five months to get it dry enough to burn properly. For the purposes of smoking, can wood either get too old or too dry at which point it's less suitable than fresher wood? Is there a reason not to buy a cord of apple and have five years of smoking wood?

    Once it's cured, it'll last pretty much indefinitely as long as it's not stored in too moist an environment. Too dry would be almost impossible unless you build your own kiln and dry it for some insane amount of time. It's otherwise naturally gonna pull enough moisture out of the air, or give up excess, to stay about the right spot
