Black Cherry?

Discussion in 'Woods for Smoking' started by hobohollow, May 5, 2010.

  1. I hear mention of people using Cherry for smoking, but haven't heard anyone mention black cherry. Is all cherry one in the same? If not, is black cherry a suitable wood for smoking?

    I believe black cherry is the same as wild cherry. I may be wrong on that. But thats what i smoke with. Its quickly becoming my fav wood. Some also use choke cherry. I havent tried that yet.
  3. I'm with HDsmoke, wild or black cherry is excellent if you can get it.

    I would think it would be very similar to cherry wood which I use all the time.
