Thanks guys!!!! lots of great feedback.
The cherry is stacked - going to let it season up.
I'll continue using the apple that I chunked up from a dead branch for now and will put up a bunch more when I cut that tree back in a month or two when all the leaves are gone.
@ oldschool... Sorry, I'm pretty confident that I'll be finding use for all of it
. Besides smoking meats, I also have a couple projects in mind for my wood lathe. You can still be a besty if you want, but no need for the road-trip.
@JIR... I've got a freezer full of salmon and plan to add to it this weekend and the next month or so while they are running.. The cherry won't be dry yet, so I'll have to stick with apple for now. Next year though, I'll give cherry a try for sure.
Has anyone smoked venison or venison jerky with cherry or peach?
