I just got access to a lot of wild cherry wood. I have never used cherry, is it a good smoking wood? Is it better for one meat or another?

Nice on most anythin, a lighter smoke then hickory though. Would be fine fer ribs an poultry as first choice. Nab all ya can get!

Cherry is about all I use. It is quite forgiving if you go to heavy on the smoke too. It is also known for producing a nice smoke ring.icon_smile.gif

I now use cherry and apple for all my spares, great flavor that is not overbearing.

Most of the wood I have is Apple, and it's great. If all I could use was Cherry I would still be a happy smoker. It is a nice light sweet smoke.

Take it and split up all you can and store it well away from your home.. Cherry is also my main wood choice, the other being apple. But I use cherry on everything I smoke and grill. Besides the great smoke ring and flavor it gives the meat, it also smells about the best. The one downside I have with it is that cherry seems to attract more flies while it is drying out than any other wood. Another great benefit is that it splits so easy. After I cut my split wood into pieces 4 to 6 inches long I even sometimes allow my grandson to split it a little more with a camp hatchet. Cherry will quickly become your favorite on its own, but getting it free will only speed your decision in that direction along.

Excellent score!! I have access to a pretty good supply of wild cherry, too and LOVE the stuff!!

Nothing better than sitting around the smoker with a cold one and catchin' a whiff of that sweet cherry smoke.
