    I have friends that will be removing there Cherry fruit tree orchard in the spring due to it being unprofitable. my question is. Is the wood from a cherry fruit tree safe for smoking use. or is it mostly cherry wood hardwood is used?

    Our black cherry in Florida is a huge tree, probably not the same as the one you are speaking of. It is one of my main woods to use when smoking. I like to mix it with oak and pecan.

    I'd think it would be good stuff. I've used fallen branches from ornamental cherry trees here in DC and gotten great flavor and color.

    I use cherry then finish the last few hours with pecan. Time depends on what im smoking. Tastes great.

  9. Cherry is my favorite wood for poultry and ribs. Can't go wrong with that.
