Tabasco Wood Chips
 
Any one try the Tabasco Wood Chips? (From the barrels used to ferment
Tabasco Sauce)
If so, what kind of taste does it impart?
Thanks.

If you can get them for free, tastes great. If you have to pay, it tastes
mighty gimmicky.

As Mr. Schidt implied, it's a marketing gimmick...I picked some up cheap on
closeout. I couldn't tell any difference between them and regular oak (I
think they're oak) chips.

Same as the Jack Daniels wood chips. They smell great unburned, but when
they hit the flames, the bourbon smell is gone in a flash.

I picked up a couple bags at Walmart for $1 each. That's pretty close to
free.

They smell like stale bourbon, that's for sure.

I concur, sadly and wholeheartedly.

It just makes sense that it would work as described. I mean, this wood
has been in contact with an extremely flavorful and strong substance
for years. Yet, I could tell no difference whatsoever between Tabasco
and regular oak chips.

I guess it also makes sense that the process of burning removes all of
that flavor or those flavors just don't make the "smoke to meat"
transition, too.

Get them, but don't pay any more than regular oak chips for them.

Oh, I dunno, I detected a difference. Cain't say as I liked the
difference, since things mostly just tasted 'dirtier,' but I
thought there was a difference.
