I'm using them all the time! Been buying decommissioned French Oak and Missouri Oak wine barrels from some of the micro vintners in the area. $600+ brand new, and I've gotten them as low as $30 each! They cry when I tell them I'm burning them.
Price has gone way up in the area with guys making furniture out of them and CNC engraved barrel heads! Just sayin'!
Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah are what I've gotten stashed away.
