Best of Barbecue Wine Barrel Staves

Wine and great barbecue share much in common — they both owe their soulful flavor to wood. We’ve brought wine and barbecue together in this unique fuel: red wine barrel staves for smoking and grilling. Toss a few of these convenient size barrel pieces on your fire and get ready for an extraordinary flavor of oak smoke with red wine overtones. Toss a couple of staves on a hot bed of charcoals, or on a gas grill, place directly over one of the gas burners under the grill grate. For even more flavor, build your fire entirely from these barrel staves. For smoking, soak staves in water, then drain well and place on the coals or in the smoker box. Any way you use them, the wine and smoke flavors are out of this world.
