    Can't say as though I have ever tried cherry when cooking. Depends on what I am cooking really. Favorite is probably hickory for most everything from pork to veni to turkey. We have plenty of hickory and maple around. Use apple, pecan, and maple some too.

    Pecan is a favorite of mine. Good Hickory is tough to beat as well.

    I've always used hickory and pecan, and after I used cherry wood for the first time it's hard to go back! That cherry adds a great flavor

    I prefer hickory, but it's tough to find around here so I use oak mostly, which is almost as good IMHO.

    75% apple, 25% cherry.
    Thats all I ever use when smoking for myself, catering events, comps and everything else.

    depends on the recipe and meat. I've used hickory, apple, cherry, maple, oak, cedar, and mesquite.... in that order with hickory being the most and mesquite being the least.

    Mostly hickory because all I have to do is walk outside and whack a tree down, they are everywhere down here. Never tried cherry, not nearly as common but certainly plenty of it here and there. May have to give it I try. I use hickory green or dry.

    Native Pecan.... I have quite a bit of it on my place. Easy to come by.... good flavor too.
