    I seem to fit an experienced novice description. Been wowing people with my grill fare for 30 years or more, learned by just watching my dad. I am one of the only people I know at the moment that uses oak bark soaked in water as a smoke enhancement to regular barbecue grilling, will try it in my smoker before winter this year.

    Thanks, Jeff, for putting together a wild place to discuss and learn smokin'.

    Welcome to the SMF. Oak doesn't need to be soaked to give off good smoke. Its good just the way it is not to sure if the bark is any different.

    They sell Jack Daniels soaked Oak chunks at Wally world BTW.

    I also highly reccomend taking the Free 5 day ecourse....did we mention it was free?
