    Well, I've *done* it, but I'm not quite sure what you're looking for. Are you wanting to use a stick burner and do the entire cook with cherry wood, or are you wanting to add chunks to a coal fire? Ribs for personal eating, or a catering job?

    When I did mine, I used a mix of cherry and pecan chunks, about 2-1 cherry, in a kettle over lump coal. It had a good flavor, and the pecan added a nice backdrop to the milder cherry. The rub I used was a basic 'cue rub, a little sweeter than my norm, so the overall effect was a lot milder than I usually go for.

    Hope this helped. If not, or you need more detail, please let me know.

    Thanks Rob.

    That addition of pecan to the cherry sounds really good, knid of like a cherry rib pie w/ nuts in it.

    Why don't you share some of your rub recipes with us? Everybody loves a new rub recipe.

    Be glad to, but usually I just add to a commercial rub.

    The rub I used for my cherry ribs was roughly 2 parts paprika, 2 parts brown sugar, 1 part garlic powder, 1 part onion powder, and another part of cinnamon and allspice. I say "roughly" because I rubbed the ribs with lime juice and was sprinkling the spices directly on the ribs, no premix involved. I wasn't sure how it would taste, but the kids liked it, and it worked pretty well with the fruitwood.

    The cherry does make whatever you're smoking come out *very* dark, so be prepared.

    Wonder what a dash of ground cloves or Wooster powder would do to that.

    Wooster might be pretty good. I haven't seen powder, so I may need to make a trip to the spice store.

    As for cloves, the allspice has cloves in it, so it might be a bit overpowering. I learned my lesson from that when I added both cloves and allspice to a 'cue sauce and the cloves taste was a bit much for us.

    We use hickory to start the cook (Lang 60) and then add cherry wood as we introduce the ribs. We think it imbues a very smokey seet flavor and have had some good results in comps.

    Have you ever considered turning in some "salad ribs"??? (I know - I'm going back to the corner ... again)
