cherry tree question

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I recently received  some fresh downed cherry wood from a tree the city cut down.   I have had it sawed into slabs for wood working, and as I run it through the surface planer, I get a lot of good wood "shavings"" out of it.

My question is " Is this good enough to use in my MES 30" for ribs and Boston Butts?

 

Thanks

Skipper

you bet they should be excellent. Just be careful how you store them so as not to mold.

Watch the first few smokes... Wood shavings have tendency to catch fire...

Tried the shavings yesterday in an empty MES. Seemed to work great. Left the smoker on for about 5 hours, good smoke, and no fire.

Try it soon with food.
