Whiskey barrels

Discussion in 'Woods for Smoking' started by summersolstice, Jan 16, 2008.

  1. As a newbie I conducted a search and didn't see anything though I'm sure this has been covered... Would it be possible to use the wood from the old whiskey barrels that are sold at lawn and garden shops for smoking? The barrels are lightly charred on the inside and have whiskey impregnated in the wood so I thought it might be an alternative to buying those expensive bags of wood chips. A half barrel is about $20.

    Old whiskey barrels are highly sought after, and provide a wonderful smoke flavor. Just make sure they have not been altered by the lawn and garden folks.

    The folks at Jack Daniels seem to think so.
