Keeps them frozen and keeps the moisture in the wood. The sugars and saps in fresh fruit wood are what make them so amazing.

Gotta go easy on this cherry compared to hardware stores cherry. I use it for color and pecs. For flavor. I can't stand hickory.
Forgot about these little guys hiding also. Dang cherry wood everywhere!
I'm always competition shopping so even if we go into the stores I always look around to see of anything worthy of buying for comps. I'm real picky about my meats. I Will cook anything for friends or family, but I probably check 25 ribs on average before I find a really nice one with straight bones, nice marbling and thick all the way through. Last time I went into my comp brisket suppliers BBQ shop, I snagged 2 choice CAB 17lb national packers.
