Choke Cherry

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have alot of choke cherry bushes where I live and I was wondering if it was good to smoke with. I wanted to ask if any of you guys have used it and if you have what you think of it.

Crutch, Check out the Sticky in this forum "Woods for Smoking". It states that choke cherry wood can produce a bitter smoke. If you want to try it use it on some meat that you didn't pay an arm and a leg for. Maybe try a whole chicken when you find one on sale.

Thanks Dutch,
That's good to know. If it's bitter I think I'll just pass on it, I've messed up enough good meat as it is.

I have uised choke cherry on hamburgers and chicken with good results. What we call choke cherry is a tree, not a bush. Is there a difference .

Re: Choke Cherry

Yes, there is a choke cherry bush and a choke cherry tree. The tree is dandy for smoking.

I'm sure those that say the bush is no good for cooking are right.

I've used some choke cherry trees, never herd of a bush.
