Cherry IMO is the most underrated smoking wood. A peice or two will work well. I do the 1:1 rule which is something I came up with. UDS or BBQ vault, they both consume about the same amount of fuel. 1 chunk of hardwood for flavor(pecan or post oak) : 1 chunk of cherry for color for any 1 cook. No more smoke is needed IMO for great tasting home or comp BBQ.
