After the mash is bottled into TABASCO® Pepper Sauce the empty white oak barrels are cleaned out and, unlike whiskey barrels, are put back into the system for reuse. Some of these wooden barrels may go through up to 10 to 15 aging cycles in their lifetime. TABASCO® wood chips are made with the wooden staves of these used aging barrels. Use TABASCO® wood chips to grill or smoke your favorite meats or seafood. Truly one unique product!
Talk about great flavor. These wood chips are made from the white oak barrels used to age TABASCO® brand Original Red Sauce.
