what type of cherry wood can you use

post #1 of 11

I have wild cherry trees back in my woods. But i'm not sure if the cherry you smoke with is the fruit tree type or the cherry used for trim and cabinets etc. I just cut down a large cherry tree , and was hoping I could use some of it for smoking . I have mainly been using hickory , and mequite but I would like to try some new woods , and since I already have this it would be easy access.

There's the old saying, if it has fruits or nuts......... Try some pecan apple or oak too. Personall I think cherry taste like chloraseptic throat spray.
wife likes it though.

I use wild cherry almost exclusively and love the taste. Its also easy to get around here, when folks know you want it they will let you know when they have one to get rid of.
