Cherry wood is a sweet, fruity wood. The smoke is light to medium with smoky notes. The smoke will turn light colored meats (especially poultry) darker, or even a tinge of red. This wood mixes well with oak, hickory, and other fruit woods.

Type of foods that go well with cherry wood:

  • Beef
  • Pork – especially good with ham and bacon
  • Poultry
  • Game meats – lamb
