Default finally found some!!!

So lately I've been wanting to try some cherry wood and i havent been able find any....only cherry chips. I finally found some today at a small hardware store. i've cooked with lots of other woods, just not cherry. Tomorrow i'll be giving a pork shoulder a HNF cherry smoke and i cant wait. now doubt it's gonna go well with the Simply Marvelous sweet and spicy. too bad i have to work today. i hear the sweet smoke flavor of cherry is awesome!! anyways, i'm just looking forward to it and thought i'd share.

any pointers for cherry wood?

I think you're going to enjoy that! I've been on a cherry kick all summer long. Not only a great flavor, but adds a beautiful color to things as well.

If you're in Virginia, there should be cherry growing all over the place, wild cherry is a pioneer species and sprouts up like weeds in disturbed areas. Check with a tree trimmer or city park maintenence department or DOT, and they should be able to hook you up with some free logs and limbs.
