    I'll be hanging. Around to see how it turns out. I love cherry wood with pork, but, like you, never tried it with turkey. I'll bet its good!
     
  3. well it was either add more charcoal, or finish it off in the oven. it was it at 159 degrees so I just finished it in the oven. looks pretty good so far.

    That looks great!  I will be trying a turkey breast this week, and cherry may be the way to go, thanks!
