    Oh my!! For the first time last week.Take a teaspoon of the melted drippings, 1 or 2 finely chopped green onions fresh from the garden -sautee them for a few minutes then stir them along with some of the crumbled bacon into brown & wild rice or linguini..... Its heaven I tell ya. :coolsmile: I've used sugar maple scraps from the shop,local silver maple on my smoker & Weber kettle,even tried a small chunk of Norway Maple from pruning the neighbor's tree last week. Its all good,though Sugar has the most flavor I'd say.Last Fall I smoked a nice slab of wild-caught Norwegian Salmon with some dry Sugar chunks,one of the best pieces of fish I ever ate. ;-)

    Never would have taught to use silver either. Seem's hickory is the big one here, and sugar is very rare.

    Jake, being an old friend does tend to make this a bit tricky for charging. But you still have to charge enough to cover your butt as that indeed can be some work. I'd put some in buckets and then figure out the total cu. ft. so that in the future you could deliver without stuffing those buckets. Those buckets like that are not easy to handle.

    Those buckets are a bit, was the only thing I had (over 30 of them given to me). I told him up front that I have enough that money not nessary. Hes running 6-8 bags 20lbers of kingsford and 30-40 lbs of chips. He got a 2 sponsor but as I remember that don't pay well. He is to the point that he really starting to look at cost. I will try and post a pic of him....This guy has bbq pouring out of him! :lol:

    I'm an atheist... but this deserves an AMEN.

    Split it all at once if you can- get ahead on the stuff. Save splitter trash too.

    Bingo - I would split up enough at one time to last a while. Then just fill buckets as needed. Turns into a 5 min. job.

    My wild cherry has real small cherrys, I didn't realize that the cherry everyone talks about burning as firewood was not the same, I stacked some out by my smoker and plan on using.

    I know there a lot that do use it. This guy is doing Competition bbq so wild cherry is a Little distracting or to aromatic for that if you will.

    I have found that the wild cherry works of you are doing thinner cuts like chops or chicken hooters with quicker cooking time. For shoulder/butts, brisket, etc. it is too much. I stick with the classic of hickory and a bit of fruit woods.

    I used black cherry quite a bit (mostly on pork). A little goes a long way, but I like it. Just have to make sure it is well seasoned you don't overdo it, or mix it with something a little more mild. Cherry and apple are a good combo.

Life really pick up for a guy running that much bbq with 80 percent charcoal! Bet it will be at-least 50/50 real quick!
