    Most fruit tress will have some pitch when green. It dries as the wood does. I wouldn't worry about pitch from cherry or peach. Its not like the pine sol that comes from coniferous trees. Think of it as syrup from a maple.

    My experince with cherry is that it when it is green it will have a pitch in the outer (lighter colored) ring of wood near the edge. After the wood is seasoned well it will be excellent for smokin! I cut a log length into 2" slices. It really dried (seasoned) quickly. Now when I mix it in charcoal I just take a hatchet and make small chunks the size of briquetts.

    This is what the pitch looks like. I do remember M. M. of BBQ Pitmasters saying something like his secret was the sap from the peach trees he was using but he is sooooo full of it I didn't believe him? You all are soooo funnnnnn.....y! Thanks so much for your valuable input!

    Did you taste the sap? Do you know what kind of cherry tree the wood came from?

    I haven't sampled any pitch! Not sure about the type of tree? I will ask him Friday and report back as to the type.

    Hope you have enjoyed the cherry wood smoke. It is just about all I use in my stick burner. Not as harsh of smoke taste as some of the other smoking woods.
