Default Whiskey Barrels Chopped for Wood Lump

Ok,

So local garden supplier has oak whiskey barrels for sale.

Bushmills (localy irish) and Jack Daniels

I am tempted pick 1 up and chop it up into lumps for smoking

Anyone do this and do they work well.

I think would be nice but oak could be very strong

Also these are lovely barrel, be tempted get 2, chop one for lump and use other as a hot smoker

Ribs were great!

You mean something like this? Hands down my favorite wood for shorter smokes, wonderful flavor and smell! I would jump on that barrel immediately!

Using bourbon oak chunks today on jerk chicken. Bet I paid way more for a small bag than you would get it for buying the whole barrel. So far I have used it for ribs, burgers and pork souvlaki and all tasted a little like bourbon. If it were me I'd buy as much as I could afford and store.
