    Default Whiskey soaked wood chips?

    Has anyone ever heard of or tried soaking their wood chips in whiskey as opposed to water?
    A co-worker mentioned this to me, he has never done it but heard it somewhere.

    You can buy chipped up Jack Daniels barrels, but that's altogether different than soaking your chips in whiskey.

    I have to think that I can think of a few better uses for good whiskey than soaking wood in it and burning it.

    I'd rather drink it.

    I've heard of it, but haven't found anyone who's done it. I would think the high alcohol content would lead to the wood burning, rather than smoking, but that's just thinking out loud.

    Personally I dont like soaking my wood at all. it tends to produce creosote and other cakka that i just dont want on my food.

    Try adding some Jim Beam or JD to your fav bbq sauce if you want some whiskey flavor.
