invest in some fruit wood sticks to compliment your charcoal
back in brooklyn, i had 4 fruit-bearing trees and we would use the branches on the fire. we had a weber charcoal kettle. we smoked chickens w/ peach wood, duck w/ fig wood... just about everything got mulberry smoked... these days, its pretty much the jack daniels wood chips, although since i started harvesting my herb garden, i'm throwing the stems of the hardy stuff (rosemary, etc) on the coals and also setting up a little thing w/ a water dish filled w/ the herb stems
windy - you guys got cherry trees in your part of michigan?
