Black Cherry ok for smoking?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Being from the south I have access to a lot of black cherry (prunus serotina).  Is this one of the cherry woods that would be good for smoking.  If you break a twig or cut into the wood it has a strong pungent smell.  Anybody got any ideas?        Thanks, Mike

Is this the large cherry tree, will small black berries? I use it all the time to smoke with. Were in the North Florida area. Love to use it mixed with Pecan or Oak.

What you need to do, is forget about the first word, and just remember the "cherry" part. Or remember that the scientific name is "PRUNUS".

Anything with that name smokes wonderfully. There may be very subtle differences but overall any cherry wood will be great to smoke with.
