I am updating my experience/opinion of Cherry wood. My only prior experience was with "Cowboy" brand chips in my GOSM. I recently bought a bag of "Lumber Jack" 100% Cherry pellets. Although I can't say it is my favorite wood, I smoked potatoes and onions for 3 hours (on smoke setting) and later smoked 2 whole chickens at 350. All tasted good without the off flavor I experienced in the past. The potatoes and onions were stronger in flavor than the chickens as expected. I don't know if the off flavors I experienced with my GOSM were due to the method, amount used, brand, type of cherry tree that was chipped, etc.,. but with pellets/brand, it was good.
