Has anyone ever used cherry wood to smoke?

It is my absolute favorite.

Cherry is one of my favorites as well, it smells great when burning and gives the meat a great taste and wonderful color.
A good portion of my smokes I like to use oak and cherry.

I use it often also. When my planned smoke is going to be anything but cherry, I always toss a split of cherry into the firebox in memory of Scott in KC.

OMG! Yes! - My property is loaded with wild cherry - hate to say it but we have so much its whats burning in the woodstoveicon_redface.gif

Of course I save all the good heartwood and cut it up to fit my smoker box.

Cherry mixed with a bit of apple is most all I use.

I use cherry wood on chicken, and on other meats I mix it with another hardwood. It's very compatible with other woods.

PA Black Cherry is nearly my exclusive smoking wood. Food tastes great, smell is awesome. Can't get enough!

My brother has wild cherry on his property. I am the happy beneficiary of those times he removes branches, or as he did a couple years ago take down a whole tree.... like the others here, I find it to be a fave.
