Leftover apple core/ cherry pitts and stalks

I want to use some apple cores that are leftover from eating them, to try and smoke some pork.
I also have cherry pits and stalks that I want to use for smoking.
I know the inside of cherry pits contains a little bit of cyanide, but it's not a dangerous amount.
Knowing that, I feel like using the stalks might be a better idea, because they are basically wood.
Anybody got some advice for me on this?

You'll get some kind of Smoke flavor, but I would not expect it to be anything like Apple or Cherry Wood. Oak Wood smells sweet but burning Acorns have an acrid smell. Try it and report back...JJ

Thanks!
Also I wonder if leftover orange peels or tangerine peels would be worth trying, as I eat those rergularly too?
