Happy Fourth of July!
Cooking out on the Fourth is about as American as the stars and stripes, and this is one of my newest favorite products for the most delicious smoked meats you’ll have ever tasted.
Jack Daniel’s Whiskey Barrel Smoking Chips are made from 100-percent Jack Daniel’s oak-aging barrels. When you open the bag, you’ll get a whiff of whiskey aged to perfection, the same scent that will permeate your meats as you smoke them.
Established in 1866, the quality flavors that set Jack Daniel’s apart are also present in the wood from their aging barrels. You’ll get rich, smoky flavor permeating your meats, a touch of sweetness, a touch of spice and a depth of flavor that you probably haven’t experienced with other smoking woods.
The chips are easy to use. Soak them for at least 30 minutes before building your smoker, so they won’t flame up and will produce a steady smoke. I like to use the soaking water in the drip/steam pan on the smoker. If your smoker doesn’t have one, you can put the water from the soaked chips into a metal bowl, and set it inside the smoker for even more flavor.
Happy Fourth and happy smoking!
