    Default Cherry wood?

    Living in western Kentucky, I am wood rich for smoking. Due to Ice Storm 2009 this area is covered up with downed hardwoods. My question is regarding using cherry wood for smoking. I have access to to two very large American Black Cherry trees. These are the trees that produce lumber for cabinet making and furniture and hardwood floors. They DO NOT produce fruit edible or for making pies etc.. Is this wood suitable for smoking meat or must I find the "edible" cherry kind? Thanks in advance.

    This wood is what they call IDEAL for smoking. It will make your Q taste as if the animal ate nothing but cherries.

    In the opinion of many an expert Qer, there is nothing better.

    All I have to say is COLLECT ALL THE CHERRY YOU CAN GET AND STORE.Wild cherry is just about all Buela has ever had in her. Love it.

    By the way, I would take some pecan off your hands if I lived a little closer. Would love to try it but can't find it around here, and can't afford to buy enoungh to feed a stickburner.

    I don't know what the actual temp is, but it cooks the way I want it to, so I don't guess it really matters.

    Would you like to pick up a rick when you come down for the gathering?

    I can arrange that.

    Cherry is great for smoking. I have a bunch seasoning right now. Should be ready for use in a month or so.

    Soon as I finish sharpening my chain saw I'll hook up my trailer and head over to help you clean up those cherry trees.

    All I got from the last ice storm was a BUNCH of broke down Osage Orange, AKA hedge, and black locust. Nasty thorny stuff. NOT smoking wood, great firewood though, burns HOT.
