Can I use cedar fence pickets to build outdoor furniture?

I’m new to woodworking. I’m building a number of outdoor Adirondack chairs for our pool area. Cedar wood at my local Home Depot is pricey compared to standard pine wood, but I hear that cedar would be better since the chairs would remain outdoors and cedar would hold up better in the elements than pine. However, a 1x6x8 piece of cedar is $18.37. I noticed they also sell cedar fence pickets, though, which are considerably cheaper (less than half that price). Can use those instead?
