Never used any apple or cherry but I bet either one would be good. I use pecan on ribs. Sorry not much help.

I've been using more and more cherry lately. Gives a nice color.
Try mixing them up.

I like to use Apple and Cherry with a little Oak thrown in for good measure, Apple and Cherry in about equal amounts and about 1/2 as much Oak as either the Apple or the Cherry.

So if I put on 2 chunks of Apple and 2 of Cherry I put 1 chunk of Oak.

I smoke everything but fish with equal parts cherry apple and hickory. The fruit woods are very mild and rarely overpower pork or chicken.
