    Use the cherry.... because that's what I want to use for my Christmas bird and I"d love to hear how well it goes! :) I've used pear on poultry in the past and it's good...
     
  4. I would use a mix of the two. Using all cherry will make for a darker skin if that is what you want.

    Here is a pic of two ducks I did last xmas.

    p.s. only time I ever had a grease fire in my bandera smoker was when I did ducks. you realy have to watch that duck fat!
