    Anyone try Tobasco wood chips?

    I was watching a You-Buh-Tube video about McIhenny Tabasco sauce which was interesting and made me crave a hot sauce fix. They age the pepper mash in oak barrels for three years! As I was reading through the comments, someone mentioned that you can buy Tabasco wood chips from these oak barrels.

    I assume they won’t really have a different flavor than any other oak barrel chips but, just in case....has anyone tried them?

    *edited to spell Tabasco properly (even though it won’t let me fix the main subject line)...🙄

    might be worth a try ..... and even if it didn't make any real difference, it would be fun

      I'd give them a go, hey, if Jack Daniels can have wood chips why not others.
      Spice up the old cook

        I would just go buy some oak chips or make your own. I never found that these flavored woods ever make a difference. For a while I was picking up oak staves from a rum manufacturer, I never noticed anything.....other than an awesome oaky flavor.

        I tried them - it was smoke.

          I'm glad I'm not being a wet blanket on this conversation! When you burn wood you get smoke. Any unique qualities of the wood - like if it was a citrus tree or from a wine barrel or whatnot - gets burned up and you're left with... smoke. Not a citrusy smoke nor a wine-scented smoke or a spicy smoke. I wouldn't pay a premium for such things regularly unless you simply want to experiment here and there. It will be good, just don't expect something out of this world different.

            I’d like to do a blind study/survey with flavor profiles of different types of wood. My guess is most of us can’t tell a difference from one smoke to another. They smell different when they’re burning but truth be told I don’t tell a big difference (if any) in the final product. IMO clean smoke is the difference maker, not the type of wood

            You're right MTurney good fire management with an average wood trumps any fancy wood if you don't know how to maintain a good fire. I've done a lot of side by side wood smoke tests on side by side Weber kettles, and it's FUN! Some woods have a big difference, others not so much. But that's side by side in successive bites. If you think about using 1 wood today and another tomorrow, how likely are you to know the difference a day or more apart? Methinks not too likely. It's fun to try though.

          I’d be more inclined to use them to try to flavor a whiskey — likely a rye but maybe a bourbon — than I would try use them in my smoker

            That stuff smells fantastic as it burns, but it's just smoke when it's all said and done.

              i found them a few years ago on a clearance rack for $2. During the cook you could smell a difference but in the end the smoke taste of the food was just like normal oak.
