    Hi: Yesterday a very large limb fell out of a wild cherry tree on my property. It was still live just to heavy I guess. I've heard that cherry wood is good for smoking but not sure about wild cherry. Thanks for any help & suggestions. Chapy

    Use that baby up. I use it all the time mixed with oak and have great results. I love the smell of cherry wood burning in the smoker.

    Have a TON (well not quite that much) of wild cherry seasoning in the backyard that we just cut down a few months ago.
    Great wood for smoking poultry and pork.

    Chop it up and let it dry out then smoke it up. I use it all the time. Good Smoking.

    Nice score. I got some seasoning out back as well. Keep it dry and let the air at it and it should season up nice and quick.
  7. Cherry is probably my favorite wood to smoke with, nice taste not to harsh. A branch is a good size. I normally cut pieces about 1 to 2 inches thick, looks like a disk. Then I can quarter or eighth the disk with a hatchet, or if there small enough in diameter I’ll use it whole. Normally I prefer to smoke roasts like London Broil. Good luck with the Cherry Smoke.
