Mystery cherry wood...good for smoke?

Discussion in 'Woods for Smoking' started by themoffittman, Jul 24, 2009.

  1. I got my hands on some wood which I know to be some sort of cherry...perhaps black cherrry...actually, most likely black cherry. If seasoned, is it suitable for smoking? A co-worker questions black cherry's suitability for smoking. He says is might be too sappy. Any help is appreciated!!

    I think Black Cherry is the most common and largest of the Cherries. Probably the variety most of us burn. If the logs are a larger diameter that's what you most likely have...good stuff.

    The cherry wood that I use in my smoker is Black Cherry.
