Hi guys, thanks for all the welcomes. As for peach I am quite willing to stand corrected--the peach wood I used was quite possibly on the green side. My objection to it was a "pitchy" taste. On the one hand it surprised me because I know that the peach species as a pit-fruit is a close relative of cherry. (Is the black cherry that is used as a furniture/cabinet wood closely related the the fruit tree? I'm not entirely sure--if it is, I think it is a non-bearing variety.) Anyway, I think I'll have to reconsider and try it again. Especially since cherry is one of my favorite smoke woods. Looking forward to lots of learning and good eats.
