Cherry tree. Can I use for BBQ Smoke

phantomdoc | Jun 1, 2009 06:49 AM

There is a cherry tree in my yard. I have to trim it every summer. Can I use the trimmed limbs for smoking meats in my gas grill? Do I need to do any prep to the wood, like taking off the bark or drying? I live on Long Island and the tree does not get sprayed with any pesticides or chemicals of any kind. The tree has never produced fruit. If anyone can tell me which type of cherry tree this is would be an added chowhound bonus.
