Yesterday I saw a friend of mine. He frequents a bar and they know he smokes food as well. They gave him chips from a newly destroyed whiskey barrell. He can't use them so he gave them to me. They smell wonderful but they are still soaked\wet from the whiskey. Have a few questions as I have never come across this. Does anybody know how long they can stay good before they need to be used? I am assuming they will mold. Don't know if they would stay good for awhile since they wood was soaked with alcoholic beverage. Or does anyone have a good easy way to dry them out?
