Even Bigger Score!
the pomegranate wood is from a semi-abandoned family pomegranate orchard. All of the trees still produce, but no one will miss a few
All i have to worry about is the weeds growing around them.
I've yet to cut any down, because my dad just scored some wine soaked oak from his buddy that works Gallo Winery. (ok its Gallo wine, but hey its free!)
Apparently they dont make the wine in oak barrels anymore. The wine is in huge metal containers and they just throw big bags of oak chunks in. (maybe thats common knowledge, but I didnt know!)
I havent tried the oak yet but my dad has been smoking alot of trout with them. I really have nothing to compare it to, but the trout tastes really good to me.
Hell, free pomegranate, free oak chips, yeah maybe I should should start a business!
