A BBQ specialty store near us sells strips of Jack Daniels barrel staves for smoking. I have not tried them, but they smell wonderful (about 2" wide strips of the oak barrels with the full char on the inside). I don't have a stick burner, but I keep saying I need to get some and cut them shorter to try in my WSM.

Just purchased this unit a few weeks ago have only used it 3 time and just the love the way to cooks. Real easy to keep temps and the smoke box is huge.
This is my first smoker and I've had some great success with it already. It was pretty easy to get some good results even on my first runs. I switched from chips to chunks for the wood and it...

Simply the best. The Bentley of all grills and it's the only ceramic grill made in the USA. The 400XL will smoke two 20 pound turkeys.
The smoker came packaged very nicely and easy to assemble. The construction of it is pretty solid. I have used it twice so far and both times the smoker itself was good. I did put on a gasket...

On the Jack Daniel's distillery tour, you learn that they hand make their barrels, and that they only use the barrels once for JD. Some barrels are sent to wineries and other distilleries who reuse them to age their products, but some barrels end up in the chipper for smoking chips.
Oh, and they sell barrels at the Barrel Shop in Lynchburg... I'll be headed up there this weekend to pick up a barrel to decorate my bar. ;)post #26 of 312/10/13 at 5:39pm
They had them on sale at the Gander Mountain so I said what the heck.
I smoked a bacon wrapped Filet mignon turned out awesome.
smoked a pork tenderloin and was not impressed as my creation stated above.
since I am new and love to experiment, what other wood chips would be good to mix with bourbon oak to compliment flavor?post #27 of 311/7/15 at 6:28ampost #28 of 312/17/15 at 11:36am
I just recently used mine for the first time. I had used some JD in the sauce for some wings and decided it was a good time to open up the bag of JD Chips I had. I even added a splash of JD to my water pan. They turned out great, really proud since they were my first wings.post #29 of 312/27/15 at 9:45pm
I tried these last weekend on a 12# butt, honestly, prefer my normal hickory, apple wood smoke. These just didn't produce the smoke flavor I prefer, and the price is a little steep in my opinion.post #30 of 312/13/16 at 10:38pmI like the JD chips with beef and was amazing on a prime rib, (rubbed the roast with Jack and rolled in salt) added the JD Chips and only a smoke for 130-2 hrs and let the rub do the rest...... can be too much on pork and chicken in my opinionpost #31 of 313/9/16 at 11:03am
and thats excatly what brought me to this thread...I was hoping someone would be of like mind. The ideal of these chips are good but they come saturated anyhow. Not mush or anything, but damp.
you wouldnt need much whiskey (I think id like a bourbon mop better though) for the mop. It being alcohol, it would probably soak and absorb easier and deeper.
I bought a bag to play with and I feel like its just a good way to get the heat back to where it needs to be when the fires dying down.
