Big Green Shed Oak

Postby FatManDancing » Fri Jul 16, 2021 6:35 am

On the shelves of of a big green hardware- warehouse are packs of U.S.A. wine barrel oak, you know, for BBQ

Has anybody aged on this wood. I am thinking this might be great as a finishing wood and it is far cheaper than what is offered on other sites

Would love to hear your experience but happy to be a guinea pig

About the only thing I can say against them is that it just says from american wine barrels, it dosen't specify the original source of the barrel, so could be french or american oak, go hard, but it may be random even in the one pack? :handgestures-thumbupleft:

I would also want to know if it has been treated with anything...

Burning it for smoke is one thing but soaking it in your spirit is another.

Thanks four your replies

Yep Stig, you are right. Too much end grain

Bit of a shame but oak is an awesome BBQ smoking wood and at least the red wine will make the smoke smell pretty

Now to convince my red wine making neighbour to move away from chips, but he is proving very stubborn on that
