I'm going to whip up some sausage pretty soon here after deer season. Would cherry wood be too sweet for venison sausage? I have a blend of pellets that are hickory, oak, and cherry. I also have some that are 100% oak. Ill be making kielbasa and snack sticks. Most of those smoke charts i see dont recommend cherry for beef/venison.

I wouldn't use cherry - I've only used cherry once on a turkey and it was overpowering

I use pure cherry for deer jerky and everyone likes it. And I prefer cherry for fish. I think that mix of hickory, oak, cherry would be just fine for any sausage. Straight hickory is great on sausage, but I would not go with straight cherry.

I use oak and hickory for everything. Cherry is pretty strong.

I've never smoked with Cherry, but I imagine it would be good. I like pecan, or hickory for my venison summer sausage.

Or how about cherry. Wouldn't waste my time looking for it, but if you happen to have some on hand... grin

I don't care for cherry at all. Ruined 2 otherwise good hams with it. I'd stick with the hickory and oak

oak and pecan for me but that's whats available in my area. I occasionally use peach & pear when I have some available. Never tried cherry but would guess it's pretty strong for a fruit wood.

I'm an Oak/Hickory or Pecan guy. The hickory can leave a bitter taste if your not careful. I strip the bark of all the hickory I use. Pecan is more mellow.

Cherry goes great with deer and beef but I only smoke it for a short time then finish over hot coals. For sausage I wouldn't do it.

Thanks. I'll just use the straight oak, don't want to ruin a batch of venison.
