16-Inch Kiln-Dried Cherry Firewood for Fire Pits, Pizza Ovens and More

Like the cherry on top of an ice cream sundae, our cherry firewood makes fires extra special with its mouthwatering qualities. Let’s start with the smell. Burning cherry wood unleashes a mild, fruity aroma, which is not too overpowering but hangs in the air like the comforting scent of spring.

The taste is just as pleasing. Cherry adds a subtle sweetness to whatever it smokes. So, whether you want to enhance your meat or wood-fire a pizza, you can’t go wrong with cherry. Our 16-inch cherry cooking wood works best in large wood-fired grills or pizza ovens.

These cherry hardwood logs also offer plenty of heat to warm your home or campsite. We kiln dry each log for 48 hours to produce a moisture content under 20% for easy ignition and the hottest, longest and cleanest burns.

We package up this beautiful dark-red wood in a compact and resealable box for easy storage. Then we ship it anywhere in the United States with free two-day shipping. And to top it all off, we plant one cherry tree for every box we sell. It doesn’t get sweeter than that!

Frequently Asked Questions About Our 16-Inch Cherry Firewood

Is cherry wood good firewood?

Yes! Cherry wood works great for a wide variety of uses. It will provide plenty of heat in your indoor fireplace and fill your home with a pleasant fruity scent. You can also bring it outdoors where it will burn bright and smell great in your chiminea or fire pit. And if you’re hungry, our 16-inch splits will provide a mild, sweet flavor for smoking meat or wood-firing a pizza.

Does cherry firewood smell good?

We think so! If you love mild, sweet and fruity aromas, then cherry is right up your alley. The smell isn’t overpowering but will add the perfect amount of smoky sweetness to your home or backyard barbeque.

What color is cherry firewood?

You can easily identify cherry firewood by its distinct dark-red color.

Why does cherry firewood spark?

Cherry produces more sparks than other types of hardwood, such as oak or hickory. It does this because it contains more moisture pockets than those other kinds of wood. As the fire heats the wood, these pockets expand until they explode. These little explosions cause the sparks you see flying off the wood.

Our cherry firewood doesn’t produce as many sparks as it would otherwise because it’s kiln-dried. The kiln-drying process removes a lot of the moisture pockets from the wood, making it less prone to sparking.

Should you use cherry firewood for cooking or smoking meat?

You really can’t go wrong with using cherry logs for cooking or smoking your food. They add just a hint of fruity goodness to whatever they’re cooking for tremendous results.

We recommend our cherry wood for smoking poultry, pork, wild game, lamb, seafood or any other meat. It also makes one heck of a wood-fired pizza!

How hot does cherry burn?
