Have three turkeys and three hams on there for work Christmas/Holiday party tomorrow. Good stuff cant hardly beat smoked turkey, except maybe smoked brisket though it might be a dead even tie. Cherry smoking wood gives it a nice sweet fruity flavor.

He wanted Dave to guess , but couldn't do...... can anyone guess??? Wild guess, shot in the dark.... Very heavy and very dark in color :D

If I had time or another person to mind fire into the evening would let her drop even lower.

Have a lot of Cherry around here too and in Pennsylvania next state up. Luck for me as it is my favorite firewood, smoking wood and furniture wood. I even prefer it to Walnut for furniture. I like good tiger or curly maple also.

Other fruit woods are also good smokers just harder to find. Apple and pear make a nice smoke and pearwood is hard and pretty so is apple. They dont get real big but make good boxes, handles, pens and smaller items. I have a german wood-plane with a pear body that is gorgeous.


Also have tons of oak around here both white and red, some black oaks, a decent amount of hickory, maple, beech, locust and Sycamore too. And quite a bit of gum and tulip poplar though these two arent as useful gum almost impossible to split and the poplar a bit soft for most things and I never liked the smell of poplar. I reserve it for kindling mostly I even prefer good pine for drawer bottoms and sides and cabinet backs etc. Secondary furniture wood.

BTW Looks like the daughter got some good genes.
