Cherry Wood

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Folks, I'm having to cut down a Cherry tree this weekend and acting on a suggestion from cajunsmoker (since he is sending me some Pecan wood); I'm willing to ship via UPS some cherry wood to a lucky someone that doesn't have normal access to Cherry. Keep in mind that this wood will be green and will need to aged a bit before using.

Maybe we can start a Mutual Wood Co-op! :D

Let me know via this thread.

Re: Cherry Wood

This thread is about to roll off the recent posts topic and I would really like someone who wants to try some Cherry wood and doesn't normally have access to it to get this wood.

I shipped some Pecan to Dutch, but I just bought some Cherry and don't need any more. Surely someone would like to try out some new wood for free. :D

Re: Cherry Wood

Noah, PM me your home address. I'll send you the same amount of wood in Cherry that Rodger is sending me in Pecan (heck, I'll even use the same box). The only catch here is if you have something in you neck of the woods (pun intended) that is not available to a member elsewhere, you got to them on your dime. Maybe we'll average the shipping cost of what Rodger sends me and what I send to you and set that as a limit-anything above the limit and the recieving party would have to anty up the rest of the shipping costs so has not to break the bank on shipping.

Re: Cherry Wood

Sounds like a good idea Dutch.

As you know, you don't know what it cost to ship your wood.

It cost $21.95. 9(actual shipping was 20.95 but they put on a $1.00 fuel surcharge :evil: )

That was for as close to 25# as I could get. 24.90.

I hope Noah will find some of that good Georgia wood that someone might want and ship it on to them.

Re: Cherry Wood

The longest split of wood is right on top and it is 1 year seasoned. Ought to make a brisket of magnificent persuasion 8) .

The rest is split and cut into half and still needs about 4 - 6 months seasoning.

Hope you enjoy. :D

You can mix each type or smoke with all one kind wood its just how you like it. this post http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/for...?t=1034&page=5 will give you a good idea on how each wood will affect your meat.
