    Default cherry wood

    Hey brethren! A friend gave me some cherry wood and I noticed that it had a lot of pitch in it? Is this okay? Will it dry out? Not sure if I should use it or through it out? Please advise...

    You should definitely use it. Just make sure you keep a hot clean fire.

    Cherry is some of the best tasting smoke to me. I use Cherry on my ribs.
    Like Tim said, just make sure your fire is burning efficiently (thin blue smoke) and then put your room temp meat on.

    Is it sticky like pine pitch or just very wet?. I've not noticed pitch in black cherry before. Is the wood from a commercial orchard or an ornamental tree?

    I've been given some cherry before that was just like that. I let it season a bit before I got to it and it was perfect. Just so happens it was from around this time of year when storms had gone through and tore up a bunch of trees.

    I knew about the peach trees but the cherry sap is new. Interesting, has anyone given it the taste test?

    I imagine I have burnt a few sappy logs in my stickburner.
