    Cherry is one of my favorites as well, it smells great when burning and gives the meat a great taste and wonderful color.
    A good portion of my smokes I like to use oak and cherry.

    I use it often also. When my planned smoke is going to be anything but cherry, I always toss a split of cherry into the firebox in memory of Scott in KC.

    Every change I get. And will take as much as I can get
  13. OMG! Yes! - My property is loaded with wild cherry - hate to say it but we have so much its whats burning in the woodstove[​IMG]

    Of course I save all the good heartwood and cut it up to fit my smoker box.

    Cherry mixed with a bit of apple is most all I use.

    I use cherry wood on chicken, and on other meats I mix it with another hardwood. It's very compatible with other woods.

    My brother has wild cherry on his property. I am the happy beneficiary of those times he removes branches, or as he did a couple years ago take down a whole tree.... like the others here, I find it to be a fave.
  18. PA Black Cherry? Meaning its grown it PA?
