    I have never used them but I would imagine that they would impart a flavor very similar to oak......
     
  3. [​IMG]   Since US bourbon barrels must be made of white oak - per law - and are charred quite heavily before the bourbon goes in... I would think they are going to be close to using oak pellets... maybe Todd will jump in and set us straight.

    I haven't used them yet. Why not give them a try & let us know what you think.

    If they are like the Jack Daniels  chips I have used, They are very close to oak a tad bit sweeter I'd say. Like Al suggested try them and post how you liked them. I am always interested in product reviews. 
     
  6. I've used the amazn bourbon barrel dust on cheese. It was really good and you could get a slight bourbon taste imo. Would it work the same on meat? Don't know. BTW, also try wine barrel.
