    Please tell me those chunks are the aftermath of someone using this wood for Furniture??

    If not someone just chunked up a boat load of money..
  • hello, the black cherry is just fire wood actually which i cut and split , took some chunks from it.....its barkless (but the bark is flakey, like burnt corn flakes) black i'm guessing it should be good then.....wasn't sure as cherry has a very distinct smell if ya were too break a brach off and smell it didn't know what the actually wood was like

    It is great to smoke with. Very subtle. Distinctive aroma, but not overpowering.
  • Some folk have availability to different smoke-woods :( .
    I think Black Cherry is a bit sot after.
    I have some “wild” cherry here and love the way it smokes….Can’t say that it’s black, but it’s cherry and is wonderful ;) .
