Cherry is great for smoking. How big a truckload? We buy wood by the cord around here so everyone knows what is for sale.

Cherry is an awesome smoking wood; I almost always use it, apple or peach for my smoked chicken. Can't vouch for the price, though, I've never bought that much at one time.

A lot of people like cherry. I prefer Apple or pear , as far as fruit woods go. Always heard that walnut wasn't a good wood for smoking, so I've never tried it. Being a wood worker I've sawn and sanded a fair amount of walnut and it doesn't smell appealing .

I can't imaging anyone smoking with black walnut. Even tho it is beautiful, I, as a professional woodworker, hate fooling with that stinking stuff. If we HAVE to build something out of walnut, you can bet I won't be passing thru the shop too much. I do love cherry tho.

I love cherry. Use it all the time. I asked about black walnut before and got a unanimous no.

I use cherry and like the flavor. I paid $90 for a heaping, stacked, not just thrown on, truckload.

Cherry wood is great,use it a lot ,my cost???........FREE. Just my labor to cut it up and haul it home.
Black wall nut??? do not use it for smoking. If you are a woodworker like i am, that is another story.

100 bucks for a truck load is not to bad fro cherry. If you need that much wood get it. I look on CL everyday about once a month there us an add for free apple or cherry wood. Jus t have to split it and haul it home. You know what your time is worth. And black walnut is OK. But real stinky and kind of over powering. Try a little of that first before you buy a truck load.
