Here is a discussion on orchard wood. Check out post 35.
JD, generally wood is seasoned 3-6 months, depending on the moisture content of wood and where you live. You do not need to soak wood chunks. That would require the wood to dry out before it could catch on fire. Wild cherry is ok to use.
Was thinking the same thing.. if the chemicals.. don't affect the fruit adversly.. the wood should be fine to cook with..
