The story of our Cherry Cooking Wood
There’s a reason George Washington cut down his father’s cherry tree – he wanted to cook some amazing food! Cherry is a popular cooking wood because it adds a sweet smell and beautiful rosy color to meat, vegetables, and anything else you put on the grill or smoker. Cherry goes well with just about anything, it’s a great fruit wood for any occasion.
Cherry cooking wood can be tough to find in most parts of the world, and that’s why we source Cutting Edge Cherry Cooking Logs from the state of Florida. Cherry grows quickly and efficiently in Florida, making it a more sustainable source for this popular cooking wood.
Freshly cut cherry is delivered to our kiln drying partner in North Florida within a matter of days. This prevents any decomposition and ensures the cherry remains strong and sturdy. It then goes through the most rigorous drying process in the industry, ensuring that our cherry wood is dry and free from bugs, mold, and fungus.
Our rigorous Cutting Edge Firewood drying process also ensures our cherry will light quickly and that the great flavor of the smoke will hit the food immediately, enabling whatever you cook to absorb the most possible flavor.
Once dry, the wood gets sent to our headquarters in Norcross, GA. Every log goes through a hand selection process and is packaged as either a standard cut log (known as a “stick” in the bbq world) or hand cut into chunks or splits.
During selection, we check to make sure it’s the perfect size, then we ensure there is no rot on the wood, and finally, we confirm that the log includes both heartwood and sapwood. Tree trunks are composed of both heartwood and sapwood, and the best possible flavor is only achieved when both of them are together.
Once we’ve selected the top pieces for optimal flavor, we place the wood into boxes and racks that can be delivered or shipped throughout the United States.
