Wild Black Cherry

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

?

I have a lot of wild black cherry on the property.

The bark and roots are said to have a acid that is bitter and used in cough meds.

That being said if I de-bark it, has anybody any experience with this wood.

Thanks

Use it all the time bark on or bark off, does not matter.

If it is the large tree, with small black cherries, I have never had any issue with it. Smokes good, great flavor. I like mixing it with red oak. Oak gives a great color to the meat.

A friend gave me some black cherry quite awhile back I used it on some ribs, chicken and turkey and had good results. It had a stronger smoke flavor is all.

I have used my black cherry in  the UDS and in my Weber charcoal grill it is great stuff!

 

In the Weber grill I have used a little charcoal to get the wood fired, filled it up with black cherry and burnt it to coals then cooked burgers and steaks

 

great hearty smoked flavor

Not familiar with it?

 

I would not be afraid of it?

 

I have used lots of fruit woods with great success.  In general they tend to be mild and aromatic as compared to oak, hickory and mesquite?

 

Try a little and see what you think?

 

Good luck and good smoking
