Default Ideas for cherry wood?

I went to my local apple orchard looking for apple wood but all they had was cherry. They had huge boxes of split cherry logs for only $8 each so I bought two! I've used other fruitwoods, hickory, mesquite, and pecan but never cherry. What does it pair well with? Do any particular recipes come to mind? Thanks for the help!

I love cherry with beef. I use it almost exclusively on my brisket.

Cherry is no good to smoke with. I suggest you box it up and ship it to me for safe disposal.


Actually Cherry is one of the finest smoke woods that exists. It has a slightly sweet, mild smokiness that complements most foods.

Enjoy!

I've got some apple wood. We got three large trees and I had to cut the fork out of one a few years back. I saved all the wood. That's my preferred taste. Not sure how to get it to you. Shoot me a message if you're interested.

Cherry is one of my favorites, it give off a sweet smoke flavor and it gives ribs a great color.

Cherry works well with any meat. The one thing though with Cherry is that it will give a reddish hue and a darker color to your meats.

I can't think of anything that cherry doesn't smoke well. You'll like it.

Agreed. Pecan has been my go-to for 90% of what I've done...but the next time my wood place has cherry available, I'm grabbing some.
