  2. Yes. if you dont want it cut into logs and send it to me, It is EXCELLENT
     
  3. No, send it to me because its hard as hell to get it in Texas. I lucked up and found some and now I need some apple and I'll be a happy man. I can find chips down here but my firebox is huge and chips can't cut it.

    Did you ever use the Choke Cherry?
     
  5. I am interested to hear how this went.  I have a choke cherry in my front yard that has always leaned and now is leaning at almost 25 degrees or more, so I plan to cut it down and replace it before it falls.  I would love to know if this is a score for me.  :)

    I can honestly state that I have never choked a cherry!
     
  9. Have uses choke cherry when I could not get cherry-I found it to give off a slightly bitter flavor.
     
  10. I was going to, but I calmed myself down with some nice brisket
